In a quiet neighborhood on the Sunshine Coast of Australia, a routine morning took a spine-chilling turn for one unsuspecting woman. Imagine waking up, stepping out onto your porch, only to find a massive python coiled up and seemingly waiting for you. This unsettling scenario became a reality for an Australian woman who discovered herself face-to-face with a carpet python at her front door. What ensued was a daring rescue mission captured in a video, showcasing the expertise of Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7.
Taking to its Facebook handle, the incident was recounted by Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7, a snake-catching organisation in Queensland. They shared a video showcasing the rescue mission of the giant snake. The clip featured a man skillfully capturing the snake, which was perched on the ceiling and hanging from a bar. The man cautiously approached the snake, employing a tool to bring it down, and then placed it in a bag. Highlighting the importance of wildlife preservation, the snake catchers decided to relocate the carpet python to more suitable bush land. The rescued Python was then released back into its natural habitat, away from residential areas.
