The woman told the 911 dispatcher she rescued the snake the previous day, was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to The Chronicle-Telegram.

As the woman continued to yell into the phone, the dispatcher tried to calm her down by reassuring her that emergency services and paramedics were on their way.

On Thursday, the woman who has not been identified by name, made a frantic call to 911.

"The boa constrictor has a hold of your nose?" she asks.

The woman told the dispatcher during the call that she had rescued boa constrictors on Wednesday and that she owned nine ball pythons. "Please hurry. He's biting my nose".

The dispatcher sent firefighters and police to the woman's home in Sheffield Lake, a community about 25 miles (40 kilometers) west of Cleveland in Lorain County, but seemed stumped. At another point, she says, "I don't even know what".

Ed Skuza of E and J Reptile Shows & Rescue believes the woman handled the snake too soon and should have waited at least a week before bringing it out.
