WATCH: Snake strikes Oz reporter’s microphone!_1

An Australian reporter said Thursday she was terrified after a snake draped around her shoulders repeatedly struck at her microphone…

Sarah Cawte had the snake wrapped around her as she did a snake safety report. She and the snake were being monitored by a professional snake handler, but that didn’t stop the snake from taking a few bits of Sarah’s microphone.

“I was so scared because my hand was so close to where it was biting,” she said. “As soon as my shot was done, I told the snake handler to get the snake off me!”
