Theif should look before grabbing

Sunday, January 5, 2003 Posted: 8:35 PM EST (0135 GMT)

SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) -- An Australian thief got more than he bargained for when he grabbed a bag off a car's passenger seat and found a venomous, red-bellied black snake inside.

A police spokeswoman said the thief stole the canvas bag after yanking open the door of a four-wheel drive at traffic lights in the Sydney inner-city suburb of Redfern late on Saturday.

But the car's driver, snake handler Bradley McDonald, had the last laugh. The bag contained a 1.2 metre (four feet) long snake that he had just snared in a nearby car park.

"It might teach him a lesson. The snake is the innocent party in this," McDonald told reporters.

A bite from a red-bellied black snake, which can grow to up to 2.5 metres long, is very painful and could kill a small child.

May you live in interesting times.

Sweet justice for the criminal I agree with Rev should have had a taste of the medicine (lmao)


“You know its funny I was thinking about what you said. The preeminent truth of our age is that you can not fight the system. But if as you say the truth is fluid that the truth is subjective then maybe you can fight the system. As long as just one person refuses to be broken refuses to bow down” “But can you win?” “Every time I say NO”

Maybe a venemous snake in my car would prevent the theives that have been terrorizing our driveway the past couple months.
