Snake chases Muster workers

MUSTER workers cleaning out a water tank at the Muster site this week got the fright of their lives when they came face to face with a snake inside the tank.

Workers John Cougan and Georgina Crib were inside the tank when confronted by the angry snake.

Mr Cougan said he wasn’t hanging around in the dark to find out what type the snake was, and quickly exited the tank and regained his composure.

The snake then followed the duo out of the tank via the ladder.

As it slithered out of the tank they realised it was a green tree snake and happily relocated the reptile.
