Staff at Guinness’ brewery in Dublin were shocked to find a snake in a delivery container that arrived from Texas.

In time honored Dublin nickname tradition, the snake was immediately named JR, after the character from the TV show “Dallas”.

Workers at the Diageo Logistic Centre at St James’ Gate found the reptile on Tuesday.

According to Joe.ie, the snake was found in an empty keg.

Newstalk Radio reported that the snake was brought to veterinarian Bairbre O’Malley, one of the leading Irish authorities on exotic pets. The snake, JR, was identified as a non-poisonous corn snake, who was healthy if a little underweight and dehydrated. He is now being nursed back to health.

He is the first snake from Texas to be cared for by the DSPCA.
