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.
