More Great Wildlife from Hoedspruit.

Hi all FB & Blog friends…

Here is another little bit of my friends sightings around
Hoedspruit. I can get pretty green with jealousy!

One of my neighbours who lives near the Olifants river was this
morning visited by a 5 metre python which went up a tree when
disturbed.

He was worried about his dogs & the next door neighbour’s sheep.

There was talk of trying to catch it to release it further away,
but a snake that size can easily return to its territory. Better
to leave it alone to move off.

The full story on the python is that one of the owner’s dogs seems
to have become a python meal as it has disappeared & another dog
very nearly did.

It & the rather large employee were walking round the property’s
game fence when the dog, running ahead, started howling.
The python had bitten it on the shoulder. The employee threw a
stone at the snake & it let go.

Our locals rub a python’s fat on their sore joints.
