Sunshine Coast woman 'handcuffed' by giant pet python

A SUNSHINE Coast woman has been handcuffed and bitten by her own black-headed python, forcing a panicked call to snake catcher Stuart McKenzie who came to their aid at 3am.

The Snake Catcher 24/7 owner said he took the call after her screams woke her housemate.

He wrote on Facebook that she had been handling the enormous python when it "bit her on the thumb and proceeded to constrict her hands together so she was basically handcuffed and couldn't get it off".

"This is a first for me where I have had to help people over the phone to get their own pet python off themselves.

"The guy had no real experience with snakes and they couldn't get the snake to loosen its grip. After the snake had stopped biting her it continued to constrict her hands together.

"After about 20 mins on the phone they were finally able to get the snake off her hands safely and back into the enclosure."
