Brenton Asquith of Reptile Dysfunction was called to remove an eastern brown snake from Wingham Bowling Club on Thursday, October 5.

The rather large visitor was found hiding in the greenkeeper’s shed amongst the mowers, before it was safely removed and released well away from town.

Whilst it has been a relatively busy start to the snake season, Brenton doesn’t think there are more snakes around than there have been in previous years.

“The majority of snakes caught are pythons, with a few red bellied black snakes amongst the mix,” he said.

“If you see a snake, call a professional snake catcher to remove it safely, and if anyone has any questions they would like answered, please contact me.”
