Catcher ready to pounce with snake movement on the rise

AS THE weather warms up, it's that time of year again for some of the world's most deadly reptiles to come out from hiding.

Snake catcher Mick Burbury from AA Mick's Snake Removal has been relocating the dangerous reptiles on the Fraser Coast and surrounding areas for six years and is again gearing up for the busiest time of the year.

For the last month, Mick has been catching and moving one snake every two days or so from an unwanted spot in someone's house or garden.

"If you see a snake, just stay away from it," Mick said.

"Keep an eye on it to watch where it goes.

"If it comes in the house just give me a call."

Mick can be contacted on 0415 064 130.
