Snake catcher

Dear Doc
My sister live on a small holding on the East Rand. Their one dog was bitten by a spit cobra and the other was spit in the eye. I am terrified that it might breed and/or bite my family. How do you go about dealing with such a wild animal? Where can we get hold of a snake catcher?

Dear Angie

I would try and get hold of a snake person at a local zoo.

Hi Angie,

- contact Mike Perry of African Reptiles &  Venom on 083 448 8854. He will be able to refer you to snake catchers in the area.
Your sister will need to have some idea of where on the smallholding the snakes are tho.
