We are coming into the warmer months and have had a number of enquiries recently regarding snakes. If you do come across a snake, keep children and pets well clear and do not touch it. Almost all snake bites occur when people try to handle, kill or harm a snake.
If you spot a snake on a council reserve or public area please call us immediately on 8405 6600 and we will arrange for a Community Safety Officer and a snake catcher to attend. If possible please keep your eye on the snake until somebody arrives.
If a snake is on private property you will need to contact a DEWNR licensed snake removal service. To find a licensed snake catcher contact DEWNR Fauna Permit Unit on 8124 4972.
