A video posted to YouTube by an Anton Meijer shows a snake handler, Barry Greenshields, using a catch pole to lift the front end of a giant cobra out of a resident’s toilet bowl in the Glenletta Courts apartment block in the Lynnwood Glen area of Pretoria. An 8-foot venomous cobra was found in an apartment’s toilet bowl in South Africa.
A resident of the apartment building filmed a snake handler attempting to remove the snake from the toilet bowl.
The handler attempted to remove the cobra from the toilet, but the serpent kept its grip on something and was able to flee down the toilet drain.
“We have put cameras in the pipes to look for it. Residents are still worried and some of them are feeling like if it comes up they want to kill it which is something I don’t want. I hope he has left through the pipes,” Greenshields told News24.
