Owner's cat attacks and kills snake after it bites woman

A WOMAN was bitten by a red-bellied black snake while gardening in Mirani  west of Mackay.

"I walked out to the yard to pick up the hose to water the roses. There was a little snake laying under the hose that I didn't see," Denise Thynne said.

"It was laying there in the sun, I didn't take any notice until I felt the sting."

Her cat Skitzo rushed to her aid, attacking and killing the reptile.

"She came out stalking and it looked like she was mesmerising it and then she just went in for the kill," Ms Thynne said.
