Snake in attic a bit draught
A WOMAN called in animal rescue officers after finding a 5ft snake in her attic – only to find it was a draught excluder.
Animal rescue officer Karen Hogg arrived at the rented home in Aberdeen, to find the lady “very distressed”.
It turned out to be a large green and black snake-shaped draught excluder with a red felt tongue.
Officer Hogg said: “The poor lady was still shaken.
“I’d brought gloves and a pillow case to enable us to handle and contain the snake safely, but as soon as we spotted it we realised the equipment wouldn’t be necessary.
“This call-out really made us smile.”
The draught excluder – named Sid – is now at the Scottish SPCA’S Aberdeen Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre.
