Five firemen in Steyr, Upper Austria, were called out to capture what locals believed was a dangerous snake spotted on a path by the river Enns.

However when they arrived at the site and examined the suspect reptile they realised it was in fact a rather large, snake-shaped pumpkin.

It's not clear if it was placed there by pranksters or had washed up from the river. 

A dead giant python was fished out of the Enns six years ago, and was presumed to have been dumped there by its owner.
