Expert weighs in on handling snakes

Jason Arnold is a professional snake rescuer who established The Snake Man in 1999. Its sole purpose is to create a service for the community that will safely remove unwanted reptiles from homes and business premises.

He explained what one should do when they come across any snake including a Cape Cobra.

"If a person were to come across any snake, don't interfere with it. By doing so you put the snake in a position where it feels scared/threatened. Just back away from it and leave it alone or call an expert when it invades a space with people present.'' He said
