    Kudos to the author for using the correct term to describe the animal. Kudos to the authorities who released the animal away from people rather than having it destroyed for the sin of being in the wrong place at the wrong time 👍

    Wait until he gets the bill for the antivenin and hospital. It could be 6 figures.
