WESTMINSTER, Colo., June 28 (UPI) -- Animal control officers in Colorado shared a photo of a barbecue lover's worst nightmare -- a grill taken over by a gigantic bull snake.

The Colorado Association of Animal Control Officers said in a Facebook post that a Westminster resident snapped a picture Saturday of the large bull snake slithering over the grill's knobs.

The homeowner said the snake was apparently trying to reach a nest of baby robins in a tree near the grill.

An animal control officer was dispatched to the home to remove the snake.

The association said a second snake was found on an open space trail in the area Sunday.

"One reason why owners should keep their dogs on leash!" the post said.
