Australia – Tess Guthrie, 22, from Lismore on the far north coast, was woken by her cat hissing at 3.30am and discovered the python wrapped three times around her daughter Zara’s arm, who was sleeping in the bed with her.
At first she thought it was a dream but soon realised the horror and grabbed the snake by the head to pry it off her child, which caused the reptile to bite Zara three times on her left hand.
“After we went to the hospital and Tex came, they found the snake sort of down behind the bedside table and in-between the wall but I don’t doubt he was there for days,” she told the local TV station.
Zara was treated at Lismore Base Hospital and released yesterday morning.
Tex Tillis, from Tex’s Snake Removals, who removed the reptile, said the coastal python, or carpet snake, wasn’t trying to hurt the child. Full Article
