KZN’s very own black mamba whisperer, Nick Evans, secured another brave catch, making it the fourth one in the very same room.
Sharing details of the rescue on his Facebook page, Evans said he had been called to a home in Moseley Park, Durban which he had previously been to last week where he picked up a black mamba that had been shot with a pellet gun.

“This time, it was an untouched mamba, thankfully! The large snake had slithered into a 'bird room'. It's the third or fourth I've caught in that room. I don't think it was happy I took it away from its many meals-to-be,” joked Evans.

Snake rescuer Nick Evans shattered after black mamba dies from human inflicted wound
Briefly News previously reported that snake rescuer Nick Evans was left saddened after the death of a black mamba. After being called out to a home in Moseley Park, Durban, Evans managed to track the mamba down and rescue it before realising it was severely injured.
Evans said the homeowners usually call him when they come across snakes so he believes one of their neighbours may have shot the animal with a pellet gun. Evans quickly put the slithery catch into a bucket before rushing off to Dangerous Creatures at Ushaka Sea World to save its life.
Due to the massive internal bleeding suffered by the mamba, it died in the hands of the staff who tended to it. Evans has urged those who come across animals to not injure them with anything but to rather call him or someone else to have them removed.
