Snake man pulls hiding python from bush with bare hands
A BRAVE snake catcher has grabbed a snake from a dark bush with his bare hands.
Toowoomba snake wrangler Dave Wiedman was called out to a property at Stenner St in Toowoomba.
He arrived to find a carpet python in a residential garden.
What would have been an easy capture soon became difficult when the snake crawled under a bush.
The veteran snake catcher didn't let that deter him, and simply reached into the dark bush to wrangle the snake.
A video of the capture was posted on Mr Wiedman's page Toowoomba Snake Catchers 24/7 and it has since been viewed more than a thousand times.
His bravery in capturing the snake earned him the praise of Maryann Cullen.
"Gosh he seems so casual about it when most of us would be terrified that we'd get bitten," she said.
