At The Morrison Bar and Oyster Room in Sydney, Australia, a red-bellied black snake slithered up to the front door.

This type of snake is among Australia’s most venomous, capable of killing a human being. The bar patrons immediately reached out to a professional snake handler, Harley Jones, to remove the reptile.

Demetriou added that the snake was badly injured and was transported to a local veterinarian’s office.

The Morrison reported via Instagram “that the snake made a recovery at the vet, and will be released back into the wild,” adding that it was “a very unusual Tuesday indeed!”
