Snake Catcher Removes Venomous Snake From Childcare Playground in Canberra

A snake catcher was filmed in a January 12 Twitter video removing a deadly eastern brown snake from a childcare playground in the Australian capital of Canberra.

In this footage, Gavin Smith grips the serpent by its tail and bags it as it attempts to slither away.

“You are a life-saver,” a woman can be heard saying.

Smith told Storyful the childcare centre is “one of the best snake-proofed places.” He guessed the snake entered through an aperture near the enclosure’s gate. Credit: Gavin Smith via Storyful
