The video has gone viral and has received over 43,900 views and more than 1,300 likes. As the video went viral, varied opinion filled the comments section. While some thanked Evangeline for capturing the rare incident others said that it was a disturbing sight.
People came up with various theories about how the snakes ended up in the rose bush. Meanwhile, Evangeline tweeted her conclusion saying, "So we've now settled on our favourite theory: rat snake was dropped by a hawk or similar and landed in the rosebush. (But the rat snake is somewhat twisted around the branches so I wonder if when I was dropped it was still partially alive and tried to free itself and could not.)"
