That is what happened to Verna Turner on a Sunday at The Settlement of Bayou Pierre.

The snake made its way onto their dock after swimming in the Diversion Canal in Maurepas.

From there, the catfish escapes and lives to swim another day.

It does not end there, Turner says the snake was extremely tired afterwards and it just laid sleeping on the dock.
