"All native snakes in NSW are protected under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974."

http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/animals/Snakes.htm

Killing a snake is justified when it threatens human life. Not justified when it threatens a cat, and you choose to let said cat outdoors, and choose not to relocate said snake.

So yeah, don't kill it, because it is beautiful and "I don't like snakes" is no justification.

You said WIRES didn't respond to you (which I don't believe, but whatever), so call these guys http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/contact/index.htm

There are ALWAYS people willing to take a snake off your hands if you take the time to find them, generally because they share the opinion I do

AAAH!

I have a terrified fascination with snakes. It definitely alarmed me to see it, but I know I will be scrolling back up my Friends Page to check...

"£$%!&*! Scary Snake Still There!"

And so on...

What kind of snake is it, do you know? Fucker is biiig. Though perhaps not by Australian standards ;)
kwayerakwayera on December 8th, 2009 12:19 pm (UTC)
Diamond python. Small when you compare it to a scrub python - fuckers can be 5m long.

Snakes can seem really scary but that's a constrictor so, it's fairly docile around humans. It should actually be really easy to catch if you have the chance. Just put on a pair of leather gloves and pick it up behind the head then support the body. Then put it in a box and call whomever to pick it up.

ellymellyellymelly on December 11th, 2009 01:22 pm (UTC)
it's been caught - but it was no mean feat - the thing bit the dude that caught it *see newest entry*
