I don't think you can blame the guy though, it was the wrong thing to do yes but really, majority of people their pets mean the absolute world to them, in the heat of the moment and for someone who isnt savvy with identifying reptiles they are going want to do all they can to make sure their pet will be ok.

yeah i know.... but still. the dog was savable with anti ven, what about the poor snake, no anti-shovel... i never whatch those shows for the fact it shows what people can do to animals, like the poor hit and run dog.. the least they could've done for the snake was some educating rather than scaring, thats my main prob with it. they always show the bad about snakes, never the goodAccording to non wildlife keepers I'm ; A Greenie, Naive, Treehugger, Nutcase, Smallminded...

well my dog has been through this and my dad killed the snake (it had bite marks all through it and wasnt going to live anyway) [Flame shield on]
and we only killed it because the dog was still playing and getting bitten by the RBBS.
we were 45 minutes from the vet as we were at our camp spot we owned, and my dog luckily survived even though she got bit 13 times!
people in situations over react its called panicing its not like he went on a killing spree of all snakes, if your snake was out on the lawn and a bird started attacking him would you not try to do anything to save your snake, it works both ways

that bloke's alright, he gave a bulldog new nads the other day!
It is legal to kill a snake if your in a deadly situation,or to protect yourself.Alot of ppl that no nothing about snakes usually kill any snake that goes near them,if only more ppl were educated about reptiles,their will be not as many reptile falities...

good point but no, i would remove my snake and tend to it's injuries, leave the bird as thats waisting precious time to save my snake.... same if it was a snake that bit my dog, bugger the snake. help dog first, look for snake and admire later .
like said.... awarness woulda been better than "bad snake" "kill snake" treatment.According to non wildlife keepers I'm ; A Greenie, Naive, Treehugger, Nutcase, Smallminded... Uneducated . Any other keepers like to add to this list
I thought the snake was mauled to death by the dog before the owner went outside.

The amazing thing about Australia is that its inhabitants live with some of the deadliest snake species in the world...many of which are found in domestic situations. Whilst that alone isn't amazing, I am dumbfounded by the lack of knowledge people have in regards to them. Surely every Australian should be taught what to do in the event of a snake-bite and that they are protected, that it isn't necessary for people to put themselves in a potentially dangerous situation to bring a dead snake in to have it identified by a vet, nurse or doctor Snakes in this country should be treated equally to that of water safety. It's common sense!...surely???
