I got a bit of a surprise when I went outside to start work on the outdoor plumbing. Wrapped around the pipe was a decent-sized brown snake who seemed to be in a grumpy mood. All snakes we get are venomous, brown snakes are kill-you-dead venomous and are super aggressive, and also the dogs were very excited about his presence so I had to relocate him. I used a shovel and a pitchfork to hold him in place and then dumped him into a hessian grain bag which I then very tentatively picked up with the prong of the pitch fork. I then sat in the back of the truck as El drove us right to the back paddock where I unceremoniously dumped him out and he slithered away very quickly.
