North Carolina resident SunShine McCurry came home recently to find a six-foot snake lying on the floor of her living room.

Instead of losing her head, she did the next best thing: she caught it using a pillowcase and then freed it in her yard.

Her video shows her approaching the snake and then wrapping it in the pillow.

At one point, the black snake sticks its head out of the case and releases a foul-smelling musk onto McCurry, who looks visibly disgusted by it.

She nonetheless carries it through her home and out into her yard where she lets it go.Her video has been viewed more than three million times.
