“One of the residents went to fetch something from the fridge, which was being used for storage, when he discovered the snake. They shut it and tied it, effectively trapping the mamba.”
Evans said described the catch as “pretty straightforward."
“Not a big mamba, about 2.2m in length, which had eaten (most likely a rat). It was a strange scenario.”
Social media reacted with a few tongue-in-cheek comments after seeing the images that he posted.
The images show the fridge the snake was trapped in but in the background Mzansi could see something more 'insidious', according to some people: a poster with the face of former President Jacob Zuma emblazoned on it.
Amanda Jane Argall quipped:
"An open and shut case!"
Carolina Van Heerden had a good laugh:
"Hahahaha, maybe he was looking for a fridge tart to eat. Snakes can also be funny. Keep safe Nick."
Melanie Reah said:
"The state of that place is shocking. No wonder it wants to hide away there."
Lexstik Becyad commented on the cleanliness of the storeroom the snake was discovered in.
"I am not impressed by this place, it is very filthy!"
Chan Mehilal joked:
"That's what happens when you vote ANC."
Snake rescuer Nick Evans catches 3 large black mambas in different parts of KZN in 1 day
Earlier, Briefly News reported that snake rescuer Nick Evans was having a busy "mamba summer".
Evans had to rescue three black mambas in various parts of KZN, all in one day! He started off in the Reservoir Hills area before having to make his way to the suburb of Westville.
He ended his day off by rescuing a fully fed mamba in the small community of Mount Moreland. The last catch of the day involved Evans making his way into a pigeon loft where the black mamba had already feasted on three chicks.
Evans shared that this is proof that black mambas' instincts' do not involve biting a human unless they are given no choice in the matter.
