According to its Facebook page, the utility company said it was "a rough way to start the day." The power outage only affected one home, and power was restored within 30 minutes, WLKY reported.
Company spokesman Todd Blackburn told the television station that crews were not sure what kind of snake they saw, but believed it was not venomous. Crew members said they also found a nest on the pole and speculated the reptile was looking for a meal.
"His last meal," Blackburn told WLKY.
