What do I do if I find a snake in my house or garden?
In spring and summer, many reptiles come out of hiding to bask in the sunlight. This can cause concern (and potential risks) to people and their pets. During this time you should take precautions and be aware of your surroundings to minimise the chance of encountering snakes. If you find a snake in your house or garden call Wildcare Helpline (94749055) to be referred to a volunteer reptile remover. For more information see the following link - Dealing with Snakes
