Snakes go berserk on the booze

Picture (Australia) - - Front -

RATBAG rep­tiles in Oz, in­clud­ing some of our finest MAN-KILLING JOE BLAKES, are get­ting on the grog in un­prece­dented num­bers.

Just the other day in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory near Ali Cu­rung – you know, be­tween Wilora and Ten­nant Creek – this mulga snake was found with its head stuck in a can of VB, with no thought of the dam­age it was do­ing to its LIVER.

Lo­cal po­lice of­fi­cer Charles Pollard was called to the scene and later gave his ap­praisal of the del­i­cate sit­u­a­tion.

“He was alive and pretty ag­gro,” he said, sum­ming up the sit­u­a­tion.

Hmm. Sounds fa­mil­iar. Coulda been us af­ter knock-off last Fri­day.

But un­for­tu­nately it’s not an iso­lated in­ci­dent, with snakes all over the coun­try get­ting trapped by their boozy habits (see TRAGIC in­set pic).

For some rea­son, stick­ing their slith­ery scones into a VB can seems to be a stan­dard party trick for snakes, and it’s not a good look.

So if you know a snake that’s been hit­ting it a bit hard lately, have a quiet word be­fore it gets it­self trapped in a tinny and BOOZE-SHAMED in the pages of Aus­tralia’s most RE­SPON­SI­BLE mag.
