Perth Dog Walker Stopped in His Tracks by Swimming Snake

While out for a walk on a beach in Quinns Rocks, Perth, on January 4, Geoff Pape said he stopped and picked up his dog when he saw a snake by the shore.

“I nearly stepped on the snake while it was heading towards the water,” he told Storyful.

Pape began recording in time to see the snake swimming back towards the shore and slithering off up the beach.

Pape told Storyful he “ushered the snake back to its home in the rocks in the sand dune”. Credit: Geoff Pape via Storyful
