Michelle Saffer shared this video of Grant Smith of Cape Snake Conservation capturing a long Cape Cobra in a Clovelly garden.

A trip in a bucket was not on this snake’s list!

(Many thanks to Michelle and the Clovelly Neighbourhood Watch! Viv)

If you encounter a dangerous snake in your garden call the Emergency Control Centre in Fish Hoek. They will contact one of the local snake catchers while you keep your eyes on snake’s movements. Emergency Control Centre 021 782 0333
