Last week the GSPCA did not  have 1 but 2 calls to  rescue snakes that managed to travel the huge distance to Guernsey.

On the 18th May GSPCA team member Neil Hughes was called out to a local Garden Centre kitchen where a snake had stowed away with cabbages from Spain.

Tiny Tim as the very small snake has been called is a Viperine Snake which does have venom for their prey but they do not bite as a form of defence and even if it did would be harmless to humans.
