World Venomous Snake Found Glued With Other Bugs Into 'Nasty' Sticky Mouse Trap
Venomous Snake Found at School, Hiding Under Bales of Hay
A red-bellied black snake, believed to be hiding in order to protect itself as it prepared to shed its skin, has been found at a school.The red-bellied black snake was spotted by the school's maintenance man, who reported it to Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7, a snake removal and relocation company.
An animal rescue service based in southeastern Australia has shared an image of a venomous eastern brown snake that had become stuck in a "nasty" sticky pest trap along with several insects.
The devices, known as glue boards or glue traps, are essentially trays that are coated with an extremely sticky adhesive. They are often used to remove rodents, insects, and other animals that are considered to be pests from homes.
But while some people buy these traps as an alternative to snap traps, which can pose a risk to children and pets, animal rights groups have condemned the devices, with The Humane Society of the United States describing them as "cruel and indiscriminate."

The 63-year-old tried sucking the venom out of his wound, but his lips went numb and he began bleeding from his gums.The 63-year-old, identified by his last name Yu, underwent several hours of emergency treatment that ultimately spared his arm and saved his life, according to a hospital report published May 27.
The image of the trapped eastern brown snake was posted toby Snake Catcher Victoria Australia.
In the post, the snake catching company said: "This is a sticky insect or mouse trap. You can buy these nasty things anywhere. This one had caught a young eastern brown snake, some crickets and other assorted bugs.
"The snake was carefully removed using olive oil and was released uninjured. Stay warm, stay safe and be nice to snakes."
The eastern brown is one of nine species of brown snake that live in Australia, all of which belong to the genus Pseudonaja. These serpents are considered to be among the most venomousin the world, although deaths from the bite of an eastern brown bite are very rare in the country.

While the trapped eastern brown snake in the image was lucky enough to have been saved, countless other animals that become stuck in glue traps are not so lucky.
According to the Wildlife Center of Virginia, animals that get caught in the traps usually suffer a slow death due to starvation, dehydration or exhaustion as they expend energy trying to free themselves, for hours or days.
In addition, the traps are indiscriminate meaning they often catch animals that were not the intended targets—usually birds,, , and other small mammals.
The Humane Society say that manufacturers of the boards tend to suggest throwing the traps away in the trash with the live animals still stuck to the surface, extending their suffering even longer.
