Evans, from KwaZulu-Natal Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, described the removal of the python as the most powerful encounter he has ever had with a snake.
The snake was released deep inside the Kloof Gorge.
"We walked really far carrying this 31kg snake, with the bucket it was 33kg. We tied the box to a stick and we carried it [on our shoulders] like hunters. It was a very, very long walk down into the gorge," said Evans.
"We walked to a place where there are no trails or people around. We assume there are other pythons there. Se we hope that it will be safe."

"It was really nice to see it go free. It actually swam in a pool of water, under the water, for us. It was like a scene from the move Anaconda."
