Wildlife Aid is called out to rescue many different species, but reptiles are a bit of a rarity!
Simon was called out to rescue a grass snake that had become entangled in netting after gorging itself on a mouse and struggling to fit through a gap! Cutters in hand, Simon came to the rescue, but was left with a rather interesting scent as a reward!
Rescue-releases are the best sort of rescues, and it’s always amazing to see an animal go straight back to a wild life without any need of captivity. Maybe this snake will think twice, next time, about eating a big meal before facing a tight squeeze!
