This article can just be filled with Samuel L. Jackson Snakes on a Plane references but I’ll spare you the corniness. Niners All-Pro Linebacker Patrick Willis did wake up to an unwanted visitor though. According to Willis’ Facebook he found a large snake outside the back door of his Los Angeles hills home.
Willis did what any NFL tough guy would do…Grabbed a pellet gun and went one on one with the serpent.
Willis must be an amazing shot because he stopped the snake cold in it’s tracks. I’ve watched enough CSI to know that the splatter indicates that the snake was hit and killed by the first shot.
Willis had this to say on his Facebook page:
“Never a dull moment. I had an intruder in my house welcome to the hills……. Got em”
It’s official, Willis is one of the most fearless men in the League. I’ve seen 300 pound lineman run like toddlers at the site of bees or spiders, so Willis should be commended for his Indiana Jones-like skills.
