Aussie snake catcher bitten by massive carpet python that wrapped itself around his neck

A snake catcher from Australia was caught on camera being bitten by a python that wrapped itself around its neck.

Watch the entire incident below:

The incident reportedly happened in a woman’s garden in Australia.

Well, from the title itself, I was sure that this happened in Australia. 

John Castle, who runs the Josh’s Snake Catching and Relocation in Brisbane, Queensland, was the one in the video.

He caught the snake that was riled-up in a tree at a property of a woman in Norhtlakes. 

In the video, it shows Josh struggling with the carpet python.

The incident happened on May 22, 2021.

The snake then managed to wrap himself around the neck of Josh.

The man then grabbed the tail of the snake and tried to disentangle himself from the deadly grip of the python.

Pythons are capable of killing large animals and even in extremely rare cases, humans. 

As the snake was on the neck of Josh, it lunges at his head.

The snake managed to strike him near the ear.

Talking about the snake, he said: 

He has a decent weight on him. They are still a wild animal, so I still have to be careful.

Luckily, Josh was not hurt during the entire incident.
