There are many ways to trim a Christmas tree, but a woman in Australia was not expecting this kind of ornament.
“She’s didn’t panic, she just took a photo and sent it to the snake catcher, me, and 20 minutes later I had the little bugger in a bag,” Goldsmith wrote on Facebook.
The Australian Reptile Park notes that tiger snakes are highly venomous reptiles found in southern Australia.
Goldsmith said the woman did the proper thing by taking a photo and closing off the room until a professional snake catcher could arrive, the Guardian reported. Trying to kill it would not have been a smart move.
“It’s dangerous, it’s illegal and it’s cruel,” Goldsmith told Fox News.
