SYDNEY, Oct. 18 (UPI) -- Pub goers at a business district in Australia were shocked to find a possibly wounded snake slithering outside of the property.
The Morrison in Sydney shared a photo of the red-bellied black snake which was spotted outside the establishment on Tuesday afternoon.
"The staff couldn't believe what they were seeing," the bar's manager told The Australian. "You don't expect to see a massive deadly snake in the city while you are relaxing and having a drink."
Police contacted handler Harley Jones who said the 4-foot long snake was in good condition although blood on its head indicated it may have suffered an injury.
"The snake's injury is as much of a mystery as why it was there in the first place," Jones said. "There was quite a lot of blood on the footpath."
