Sneaky snake snared at Auckland Airport

A live snake was caught on the tarmac at the Auckland Airport on Sunday after catching a ride on a private on a jet. The MPI say that the snake is a brown tree snake which isn't gonna harm any humans but it could severely harm the native birds population. An MPI snake handler was quickly on the scene and managed to capture the unwanted snake. It appears that the snake had slithered in the wheel housing of a private jet that just arrived from Brisbane, said the MPI manager Craig Hughes. They say that they don't have a snake population in New Zealand. Biosecurity officials are doing their best to stay  it that way.
