Snake rescuer Nick Evans has Mzansi on their edge of their seats with latest catch
In another snake rescue story, Briefly News reported on how Durban-based snake rescuer Nick Evans caught one more black mamba and described his catch as harrowing.
"I've been trying to catch two black mambas living in a garden refuse pile at a complex in Queensburgh. They'd been there for a few weeks but no one was happy about it. Fair enough."
Evans said he attempted the catch the snakes last week.
“I arrived and started approaching slowly. I got closer and closer, and my heart rate went up. ‘Is this the time I catch one?’ I was thinking, not quite believing my luck. I was right on top of it, reached down with the tongs, and grabbed it!”
