How would you have reacted?
Carla Rosso of Calabasas had just gotten out of her jacuzzi and spotted a long, thin object -- what she thought was her dog's toy tug rope.
So, she bent down and picked it up.
Turns out, she picked up a baby rattlesnake.
She let go of it immediately, and -- to say the least -- scampered away, her dog following her.
Los Angeles County firefighters arrived within minutes to remove the snake.
Her husband Ariel Rosso decided to post Wednesday night's hilarious encounter, which was captured by home surveillance cameras, on YouTube.
