Cat picks up snake hitchhiker
December 12, 2007 02:16pm
A CAT has survived a brush with a copperhead snake, walking about for some time with the scaly creature wrapped around its neck.
Wendy Wallis of Sorrell Creek in Tasmania said nine-year-old Jelly wandered into the yard yesterday morning with the snake round her neck.
"Both the cat and the snake seemed quite happy," Ms Wallis said.
She called wildlife rescuers who removed the snake.
While Jelly showed no signs of being bitten last night, this morning she was almost paralysed.
"She's at the Montrose vet at the moment being pumped full of anti-venom, but the vet says she'll recover fully," Ms Wallis said.
