Tips on how to avoid snakes and what to do if you see a snake.
4 February 2015
Be on the lookout for snakes! Warmer weather is on the way, which means snakes will become highly active!
“We’ve recently had a number of snake sightings in Council parks and reserves and expect these numbers to increase as we see the weather warm up this week,” said Parks Manager Andrew Sellars.
“Snakes are often active near water so we recommend you stay on the paths, avoid going too close to the river or a creek, and that dogs are walked on a lead where possible.”
The most frequently encountered snakes are the venomous brown or red-bellied black snake species. Mr Sellars believes the number of snake sightings by Council workers is slightly down on previous years.
He said residents should not try to capture or kill snakes as it is dangerous and illegal.
Snake sightings on Council land can be reported on 8397 7444.
Council workers cannot help with snakes on private land. We recommend you contact a snake catcher.
