only way to know for sure is if another one dies ( hopefully not!!) get it autopsied at a vets so you can prevent any more deaths ,if it is something preventable

Brown snakes around here are at present are extremely aggressive as they are out looking for a mate to mate with, they will have a go at any thing that gets in their way, I have lost horses due to browns, and I in all my life have never seen a snake swallow a horse?


You obviously have different browns to the ones we have here, the main reason cattle and horses get bitten is because they accidentally stand on them, not because they get in their way.

If chooks stand on a snake, It does not count?

:roll: :roll: Hi mycoola,
Did you sort out the problem? (find out anything that was "for sure")? Did the problem stop?
We had a red belly in the coop on the weekend. It seemed to be more interested in hiding and the silly thing got itself trapped in a rodent bait box........ Easy or us to isolate it then to get it relocated..... So, was reminded of your situation and thought I would ask what happened? :?:

Well, at least that's something...... Meaning, it's stopped.
