This snake has got into one big slippery situation!


This grass snake got into a pickle when it was sliding around a garden pond.

But its intrusion wasn’t sly enough, and it got caught in the wire netting upon its exit!

Lucky, Wildlife Aid Foundation were called to free the snake from its wire imprisonment, and free the scared homeowner from his phobia.

Lawrie Brailey, a member of the foundation, said: “We got a call from a local builder to rescue a grass snake that was trapped in netting around a pond.

“The homeowner was scared of snakes and had originally asked the builder to kill the animal, but he chose to call us instead.

“The snake was badly tangled and needed careful work with a set of cutters to be released.

“Luckily, with the help of the builder, the snake was soon free and was released into a wooded area just outside the garden.”
