■ From page 3

Please bear in mind the following if calling a snake catcher:
• They are volunteers and have the right to refuse.
• Please know where the snake is for the catcher arriving.
• Don’t ask them to come into a dangerous situation e.g. an
overgrown garden.
• A donation would be appreciated for fuel if calling to a site
out of town.
• A donation towards to an organisation such as St John
Ambulance, or RFDS would be appreciated for the service
but not essential.
