An Australian woman who tried to rescue a snake that was under her car ended up having to call emergency services after the reptile coiled around her leg tightly.
Queensland Police said they responded to an emergency call from a property at Samford Valley, northwest of Brisbane in Australia where a woman had a carpet python, coiled around her leg.
According to a Daily Mail report, the woman was working in her garage on October 6 when she found the python under the car. However, the snake turned on her as she tried to rescue it from under the vehicle.
Footage shared on Queensland Police Service’s Facebook page shows the woman standing outside her garage with
the snake coiled up around her leg.
The video then shows the woman holding the snake’s head as an officer removes the snake. The footage also shows the woman walking across her driveway and releasing the snake back in the grass.
