The person, of unspecified age or gender, was taken to the Gympie Hospital in a stable condition.

On Tuesday the QAS issued a caution to residents statewide about what to do with “snakes on the move”.

“With snakes currently on the move – avoid walking through long grass, wear sturdy enclosed shoes and ensure you have quick access to a quality compression bandage,” the statement said.
