Chunky grass snake trapped in pond netting

Snakes are not our most common patient at Wildlife Aid, but entanglements make up the vast majority of our calls about them.

This unlucky visitor had been slithering through a garden when it got stuck in fine mesh around a pond. A builder had found the tangled animal and had called us for help.

Simon rushed to the scene where, with the help of the builder, he quickly cut the snake free. Amazingly, it had not been injured despite being heavily tangled, and was released back into the wild shortly afterwards!
