“Mom, you have to put that on YouTube.”

That’s what a little boy said after a snake snatched the little fish he’d reeled in and it was all caught on camera. The boy got his wish.

“My son caught a little perch, reeled it up to the shore and as it flopped around, it unhooked itself,” Cindy Kruller wrote on YouTube. “As soon as that happened, a garter snake comes out of nowhere and grabs it! My son started screaming about a snake stealing his fish, so I grabbed my camera and filmed the chase. The snake ended up dropping the fish and we were able to get it back in the water.”

The snake dropped the fish after slithering away with it for a few seconds and then the boy put it back in the water.
