A snake catcher in Queensland almost ran over an eastern brown snake as he arrived at a job to capture and relocate the serpent on September 16.
The snake catcher, Stuart McKenzie, said a Sunshine Coast plumbing and gas services business saw a snake around some of the pipes in its yard and asked him to come take care of it.
Footage posted to Facebook shows McKenzie arriving at the assignment. He said in the caption, “As we were pulling in, not seeing the snake which had snuck off … we came within a meter from running it over!”
McKenzie jumped out of his truck and was confronted by a pretty feisty snake. The highly poisonous brown was soon safely bagged. Credit: Stuart McKenzie via Storyful
