Seems our resident snake will not be bothering us again. The Burmese gardener who visits fortnightly spotted the cobra and bashed it to death with a bamboo pole, but not before it managed to spray one final shot of venom into our dog Sandy’s good eye.
We’re very grateful to the gardener. Shame the snake had to die but what to do?
At least we’ll be able to go out in the garden now – provided he got the right snake!
