carpet python tries to eat a woman in samford valley north west of brisbane

A brave reptile lover who tried to rescue a rogue snake from under her car was forced to dial triple zero for help when the python coiled itself around her leg.

Queensland Police were called to a home at Samford Valley, north-west of Brisbane, after the woman became entangled with the two to three metre long carpet python.

The woman had been working in her garage at 7pm on October 6 when she noticed her cat had cornered the snake under a car.

The self-confessed snake-lover went to rescue the wild reptile from being attacked but it quickly turned on her.

The carpet python wrapped its tail around the woman’s leg and constricted, prompting her to call emergency services to help her remove the python.

She tried to pull the creature off but it soon became clear it was not keen on letting go. 

Footage taken by police shows the woman standing outside her garage with the snake coiled around her leg. 

‘The snake is still wrapped around her leg, we are going to attempt removal,’ a female officer can be heard saying.

The woman takes hold of the snake’s head as the police officer unwinds the tail off the leg, admitting the snake ‘didn’t look happy’.

She can be heard telling police that she tried to get the reptile off herself but had no luck.

‘If I had a friend over or someone we could have sorted it, I’m so sorry guys I just couldn’t deal with it on my own’ she says. 

The woman continues to apologise before one of the officers says it is ‘the most interesting job they have had all day’. 

They continue to unwind the snake’s tail off the woman’s leg before she picks him up and walks across the driveway.

When officers offer to help put the snake ‘back into its pen’ that the woman admits it’s a wild reptile.

‘It’s not mine, he’s wild… he’s a wild snake,’ the woman says.

Both police officers are clearly shocked by the revelation.

‘Oh, seriously… so how’d you end up with it?’ one of them exclaims. 

‘Rightio…’ the other says. 

Footage shows the woman putting the python back into the grass beside her driveway before thanking police. 

Carpet pythons can grow up to 3.6 metres in length and is the largest snake found in south-east Queensland. 

While they are non-venomous to humans a bite can still cause damage such as deep puncture wounds.

WHAT IS A CARPET PYTHON? 

Carpet pythons are medium sized pythons that can grow up to 3.6m in length.

The average adult carpet python is 2.5m long and is the largest snake found in south-east Queensland.

They typically eat a variety of birds and mammals and is non-venomous to humans.

However a bite to a human by a carpet python can still cause damage, including deep puncture wounds.

Typically carpet pythons like to live in above ground areas such as roofs or wall cavities.

However they have also been found in shrubbery.

Coronavirus Sweden: Greta Thunberg stops Friday parliament protests

coronavirus sweden greta thunberg stops friday parliament protests

Climate activist Greta Thunberg has said she will stop her regular protest outside Sweden‘s parliament because of the surge in COVID-19 infections, and return to only campaigning online.

Sweden, which has shunned lockdowns throughout the pandemic, registered a record 3,254 new coronavirus cases yesterday and seven new deaths. 

‘The situation is worsening, so therefore it’s back to #ClimateStrikeOnline for me,’ Thunberg told her roughly 4 million followers on Twitter.

Thunberg has been skipping school on Fridays since August 2018 to stand outside parliament in Stockholm to demand her government take action on climate change.

What started as a lone protest with a hand-painted sign quickly developed into a global phenomenon, mostly due to the attention it gained on social media.

She urged activists to protest online in March as the pandemic started building, but she returned to her place outside parliament in September. 

‘Stay safe, take care of each other and #flattenthecurve!’ Thunberg said on Twitter.

Authorities in Sweden are now recommending residents of the capital Stockholm as well as those of two southern regions to limit contacts with people and avoid enclosed spaces as the country registered an official record of 3,254 new cases in one day.

A steady rise in new cases has appeared to be gaining momentum in Sweden in recent weeks though the resurgence of the disease has come later than in wide swaths of Europe and not so far hit the kind of peaks recorded in countries such as France.

‘We’re beginning to approach the ceiling for what the healthcare system can handle. Together, as during the spring, we can push down this curve and avoid the strain on healthcare,’ Chief Epidemiologist Anders Tegnell told a news conference.

The Health Agency also moved to tighten pandemic recommendations for three additional regions, including Sweden’s biggest cities Stockholm and Gothenburg, saying infection rates were rising sharply in these areas.

Sweden has relied primarily on voluntary measures, largely uninforced but still widely adhered to. The new tighter local recommendations, already introduced in two regions with surging infections, included advice to avoid indoor environments such as shops and gyms.

russian oligarchs wife raids sons 30m hyde park flat in 453million divorce battle

The costliest divorce in Britain took a dramatic new twist after the ex-wife of a Russian oligarch had her son’s £30 million home in One Hyde Park searched for evidence that he helped his billionaire father hide his money from her.

Lawyers for Tatiana Akhmedova – who is seeking £450m awarded by a British court – carried out a 10-hour search at the exclusive apartment.

Floorboards were ripped up and underwear drawers rifled as the ex-partner of Temur Akhmedov and their four-year-old daughter looked on in bewilderment.

An underground car park and wine cellar were also searched for any evidence that Temur has helped his father Farkhad Akhmedov hide his money from being seized by the British courts.

Tatiana believed laptops and phones could hold evidence to show that her son had colluded with his father to hide his assets in off shore companies and out of reach of the courts.

Temur, 27, a London commodities trader, does not live at the apartment at One Hyde Park and sources said he had no idea the search was going to take place.

Friends said he is outraged by the behaviour of his mother and her lawyers, describing it as like ‘something out of the old Soviet Union’.

One friend said the luxury flat was left looking ‘like a crime scene.’

Mobile phones, memory sticks and even a Peppa Pig game were seized by the team acting on the orders of the High Court.

A friend said: ‘Temur is furious that his young child was put through this trauma because of the actions of his own mother.

‘Not even a grandmother from hell would act like that. Temur has complied with every request made of him by the High Court and feels that the tactics employed by his mother would have been more appropriate to the former Soviet union than to London.’

Earlier this year he was dragged into what has been described as Britain’s costliest divorce involving oil and gas billionaire Akhmedov.

Tatiana was awarded £450m in 2016 after the collapse of her ten-year marriage but her husband refused pay her half his fortune saying he did not recognise the High Court’s ruling.

Since then his 47-year-old wife has attempted to seize his mega yacht Luna worth more than £350m in lieu of payment.

After numerous legal battles stretching over a year, a court in Dubai ruled that Akhmedov was the rightful owner and allowed him to keep the super yacht.

Tatiana, who is being backed in her bid to get the £450m by Burford Capital, accused her son of helping his father hide his assets from the courts.

At a hearing in August he was asked by a judge to explain why his father had sent him £13m in the last year but has denied being ‘an agent’ for his father in keeping his millions out of reach.

Tatiana, who lives in a £25m home in Surrey, has so far only managed to get £5m from the sale of a dilapidated helicopter since the divorce award.

The couple have spent millions on lawyers and the home search comes just a month before the start of a three week hearing in the High Court.

Tatiana will be trying to prove her son is his ‘father’s agent’ in putting the family fortune beyond his reach.
