Red-bellied black snake hits bourbon too hard, needs rescue

THIS could explain why so many snakes are fighting at the moment.

Tim Faulkner rescues red-bellied black snake stuck in tin can

Tim Faulkner and the team at The Australian Reptile Park rescue a red-bellied black snake from an old tin can!

Posted by Tim Faulkner on Monday, 24 August 2015

A deadly red-bellied black snake had to be rescued by experts at the Australian Reptile Park, north of Sydney after the snake - like so many of us - had a rough run-in with bourbon.

MORE SNAKES ALIVE!

In the 40 second video posted by intrepid animal wrangler Tim Faulkner, the venomous reptile is found neck deep in the Woodstock bourbon can, slithering desperately in an attempt to escape its alcoholic trap.

The team soon have the snake in for treatment, carefully snipping the can around its head.

On Facebook, Mr Faulkner said the snake did not have any cuts caused by the can, so it did not need help from a specialised vet.
