THE capture of a massive Tiger Snake at Lake Guyatt in Sale at the weekend is a stark reminder not to be complacent about the reptiles, according to a Gippsland snake catcher.

The almost two-metre long snake was captured by a licensed snake catcher on Sunday afternoon, after it was spotted sunning itself near the maze, not far from where children play.

Snake catcher Kathleen Cropley from Snakes Alive Gippsland said spring and the warmer weather had brought snakes out of hibernation, and they were “hungry and looking for love”.
