    I work directly across the road from southern cross and I’m kind of annoyed that I missed this.

    Only happened a couple of hours ago, I heard it over the radio at 2:15pm just as I was pulling in my driveway from work. LOL

    They did the right thing I think considering it was outside a major train station. Otherwise some hero may have decided to play snake wrangler and move it.

    At least someone knew how to handle that snake. Some people might just have killed it. They just kill them in some Asian countries if they see one in the street.
