Snake eats four golf balls

A carpet python has been operated on by Gold Coast vets to remove four golf balls from its intestine.

"People have been putting golf balls under their brooding hens pretending that they are eggs to make the chickens happy," senior veterinarian at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Dr Michael Pyne said.

"The snake has got in thinking that he has got a free meal and swallowed up these four golf balls."

The snake was found by residents at a house at Nobby's Creek near Murwillumbah in northern New South Wales.

"During the surgery we could see the name of the golf balls through the intestine because they were so stretched from these large golf balls being in there."
The old golf balls work everytime. We use to do that years ago, or we would put plastic easter eggs in the nest so when a chicken snake ate them it would kill the snake.
