(Scroll down for video) The father of a young girl in Thailand, freaked out when he saw a long snake curled up behind a shoe rack in his home.

The 31-year-old father of Khon Kaen, called wildlife officials after finding the 6-foot-long snake near his 4-month-old daughter and his wife.

The father told officials that he had been sweeping the floor of his house when he discovered the long snake coiled in a corner beneath a wooden shoe rack.

The man panicked as he was very worried about his wife and little daughter in case the snake bit any of them. Officials used a snake hook to catch the reptile before transporting it off the property and putting it in a bag.

The creature was later released in a nearby park. The homeowner said that he was not sure how the snake got to his house because the city is nowhere near a forest.
