Motorists travelling on the freeway south of Amanzimtoti were shocked to see a group of men carrying a massive python on a pole.
Yolandi Pearce from Pumula told Newswatch she had been travelling with her family towards Durban just before 11am when they noticed a group of people with a large number of hunting dogs on the centre median.
At first they couldn’t believe their eyes and took the next off-ramp to drive back to the area to confirm their suspicions
She says what they saw turned out to be a python about 4 to 5-metres long.
“At first, it looked like they were herding a bunch of goats or sheep. As we past the group, we saw this huge pole that they were carrying. On the pole we could see this huge snake wrapped around it. So, my husband and I looked at each other – and said ‘no ways!’,” Pearce said.
“We took the next off-ramp, turned around and came back again just to make sure what it was we saw with our eyes. As we turned around and went back, on the off-ramps they were standing with this big snake and everyone was just coming from everywhere. The locals were running, people were stopping and getting out of their cars to take photos,” she added.
