No good deed goes unnoticed, and this was seen after a group of runners assisted a Southern African Python who was trapped in an electric fence over the weekend, north of Durban.
Natasha Barnes explained that her running group came across the snake in Holla Trails, Umhlali, stopped to assist the distressed snake and noticed that the fence was active.
They then contacted “the resident Snake whisperer”, Nick Evans, who said, along with the rest, that the fence needs to be turned off as the python was apparently getting weaker.
Evans also suggested that they cut the wire, leave the snake to rest for a while, and hopefully it’ll slither off by itself while others group members were giving directions to the security company to turn the fence off and find the farm manager.
“Not long afterwards an angel called Sobela appeared out of nowhere on his four-wheeler, followed by Adian the estate operations manager, and before we knew it, the electric fence was off, the fence cut and the snake free.
“Adian left the snake to rest awhile and regain its strength and then he collected him in an old duvet cover and took him deep into the bush and released him safely,” Barnes explains.
