& # 39; It is responsible for most bites in Australia. If you get bitten and don't go to the hospital, it would most likely result in death. & # 39;

He continued: & # 39; This behavior is not typical. It was chased by dogs when I and then grabbed by me so it was very upset.

& # 39; I just followed him, dropped into the bag, and released. & # 39;

According to the University of Melbourne, the eastern brown is responsible for more than half of all serious snake bites in Australia and more than 60 percent of snake bite-related deaths in the country.

They are known to be very tense and will not hesitate to bite defensively if they feel threatened.

However, Mr. Harrison believes their reputation is undeserved.

& # 39; With hospital treatment you would be back the next day & # 39 ;, he said.

# I never treat aggression from the snakes, but I treat aggression from the people I see every day.

& # 39; This is defense, not aggression, because we remove snakes that don't want to be touched.

& # 39; We are told daily that an animal has already had people, dogs, cars & so on, it is scary, so it feels very scared and vulnerable and doesn't want to die.

& # 39; So it defends itself with all its power. & # 39;

He continued: & # 39; To keep it in perspective, dogs here in Australia kill five people a year, horses 20 and two snakes.

& # 39; But snakes have a bad reputation, check it out. & # 39;

Tony gathered the eastern brown snake on Saturday in Pimpama, a suburb of the Gold Coast town.
