Fear lurking over Pretoria apartment residents after snake escapes capture
PRETORIA: Residents of an apartment building in South Africa’s Pretoria are living in a state of worry and fear after a snake escaped capture.
Anton Meijer, the person who posted the video on his YouTube account, captioned the clip with “we still have no idea where the snake is hiding.”
The video shows a snake catcher named Barry Greenshields catching a cobra from a toilet. However, he lost his grip and the snake managed to escape from the sight.
It is unknown as to where the eight-foot reptile is hiding.
Although, the residents want to kill the cobra by themselves, Greenshield prefers he would capture the creature alive.
“We have put cameras in the pipes to look for it. Residents are still worried and some of them are feeling like if it comes up they will kill it, which is something I don’t want. I hope he has left through the pipes,” he added.
