FYI:  A 'tyre' is just like a tire.  However, since they're British (or in commonwealth countries), they have to be put on the *opposite* sides of the car to work properly.

The snake was biting at the hook so the catcher just grabbed it with his hands and chucked it in the bag.

Later in the article, the catcher explains why he doesn't wear gloves to catch them.

Daaaaaamn Australia!

"No snake ever attacks," he said.
Bullcrap. He's never met a damn cottonmouth\water moccasin.
Those ill-tempered lil' shiats WILL attack, because FU, I'm a snake, that's why.

Venomous snake trifecta in Australia? I think that's every day ending in "y".

Not only that, but because Australia is in the southern hemisphere the "tyres" spin in the opposite direction.

I'm surprised at his comment - I'm going to assume he's never met an eastern brown. Nasty, aggressive farkers who not only attack, but chase if you run away.

Nor I. I'm still actively not considering it.

Yeah, I feel you. Don't settle for anything less then Regional Snake Catcher. Personally my dream is to be National Snake Catcher.  Go big or go home.
