A Spitting Cobra under the couch? Yikes… Nick to the rescue!

A Spitting Cobra under the couch? Yikes… Nick to the rescue!

While Snake Rescue’s Nick Evans was on his way home from releasing snakes he’d rescued from around Durban, he received a call from a man he’d met a year or two earlier. ‘Help, there’s a snake in my sofa!’ – he told Nick.

“I’d met this guy a snake awareness talk that I had done at his place of work. He’d told me he hunted snakes. He even had a horrific video of his dogs attacking a python. I tried convincing him to rather leave the snakes alone, and if there was ever a situation where the snake needed to be removed, to call me,” recalls Nick.

“I wasn't sure if I had managed to convince him back then. But when he called about a large snake in his house, I was so delighted!”
