Snake shocked Sur­rey bin­men

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

BIN­MEN were shocked when they found a lethal six-foot-long BOA CON­STRIC­TOR while do­ing their rounds.

The work­ers were pick­ing up rub­bish in Ot­ter­shaw, Sur­rey, last Fri­day when they spot­ted the snake slith­er­ing out of a bin bag which had been dumped in a car park.

The bin­men re­ported the snake to bosses who called a lo­cal pet shop to send a worker to catch the slip­pery cus­tomer.

Ac­cord­ing to the street clean­ers the snake – which wraps it­self round its prey and chokes it to death – had been dumped in a bin bag, but had es­caped and was ‘suf­fer­ing from the cold’.

Coun­cil bin boss Dave St­ed­man said: “The snake has warmed up and eaten and she is now mak­ing a good re­cov­ery.”
