A poisonous snake that loves alcoholic beverages, was captured after getting its head stuck in a beer can, police in Australia said.
The deadly Eastern Brown snake was found in Adelaide, with its head stuck in a can of beer that was left in a backyard.
Lauren Lehman, the owner of the home, said that she went out to her backyard and found the four foot long snake. At first, Lehman was confused and did not know what to do.
Later, she called a snake removal service to take away the reptile. Snakes Away safely removed the creature from the woman’s yard.
Ian Renton said that in his long career of snake removal, he has rarely encountered the deadly Eastern Brown snake. Renton’s son recorded his father as he carefully removed the snake form the beer can.
