They spend most of the daytime hiding and are known for entering farm buildings etc. because they eat mice. My guess is that it found a crack to get in and was resting there somewhere and we disturbed it going in and out the door. Probably it tried to leave and got pinched when someone stepped on the threshold. Good thing I'm not afraid of snakes, there was no way to get it loose without handling it.
