Fond saw the snake while driving through Brooksville. She began recording on her cellphone and used a stick to try to free the black racer snake, WTVT reported. Her two small dogs looked on as interested observers, the television station reported.
"I gotta save a snake! Oh God, I don't know how I'm going to do this!" Fond could be heard in the video.
After breaking her nail, and several minutes of poking the snake, Fond was able to free the reptile from the beer can, WFLA reported.
"How on earth did I get the courage to do this I have no idea! She even wrapped herself on my arm twice!" Fond wrote on Facebook. "It was a battle but I saved her. All for the sake of the animals.
Fond kept the can as a souvenir. She is still scared of snakes, though.
"I look at them, I will see them, but I don't like touching them," Fond told WFLA.
