MORRISTOWN, Tenn. - A Tennessee woman caught more than just a video when her dogs started messing with a snake in her backyard.

Roxanne Carson posted a video to Facebook on Monday of her dogs George and Dayla attacking a snake that made its way into her backyard.

Unfortunately for Carson one of her canines happened to launch the snake right at her during the altercation.

"I was just walking, talking on the phone, and then I see the snake so I screamed, of course, and I just started videoing it,” Carson told WATE in Knoxville.

Carson said George was bitten by the snake but was fine the next day.

The video has gone viral since it was posted, with more than 2.8 million views in just a few days.

Carson told WATE the incident happened in May 2017 but she posted it to social media after talking to co-workers about snakes.
