Intruder was caught on the house doorway

Mrs. Chen, resident of HongShan Community, was leaving home to work in the afternoon when she was shocked by what she saw: two snakes longer than 1 meter were twisting together and mating in the hall.

Scared by them, she returned home and informed the police immediately. When the forestry personnel arrived at the scene, the two cobras had already plunged into the gap in the retaining wall. The forestry officers and the neighborhood security surrounded wall from both sides. Brave citizen used hot water to splash it to the gap where they hid. Not long after that, the two cobras couldn’t stand the warm water and they give up.

Just before I came back to the department, Mrs. Chen phoned me that she spotted another snake- said the officer – I went back and caught it in the same way.

For the quick reaction of reporting the situation to the police, Mrs.Chen was awarded 30 RMB.

From the 13th to the 15th of this month, the local police station has received 25 calls about wild snakes. From these alarm analysis we know that, snakes mostly appear in areas where there are more mountains and trees, including residential buildings and schools. Foresters said that as the temperature continues to rise, snakes will appear more frequently. The forestry officer points out that the increase of the snakes quantity is a result of the cleaner environment. However, when you find snakes, don’t catch them by yourself. You’d better report them to professional staff to avoid bites.
