This snake catcher was called in to take the snake away

The unnamed woman screamed in terror, prompting the manager of the supermarket, a local Spar outlet, to investigate. When the manager, named as Martie Esnouf, saw the python, she immediately called in a snake catcher.

The snake catcher cleared the freezer and, with the help of a colleague, safely pulled the huge snake out.

The snake catcher said the python's internal organs had shut down

The snake catcher said the python's internal organs had shut down as the freezer's cold temperature had induced it to slump into a near-hibernation status. He added that he planned to release it back into the wild away from the supermarket.

Esnouf was uncertain as to how the python got into the shop: "I don't know it got in there but it could have come in through the roof or the drains and it ended up in the shop fridge."
