┬žnakcs

Snakes are overrun - ; ? nins farms near Kyab-

ram as they move away from floodwaters of thc swollen Murray and Goulburn Rivers.

Farmers believe. they could suffer heavy stock losses if the snakes con- tinue to move ahead of floodwaters at the pre-

sent rate.

Mr. Andrew Thompson, of Wyuna, 12 miles from Kyabram, became so alarmed at the number of snakes on his property , that he and his sons

', that he and his sons

launched an all-out off- ensive against the, in raders yesterday.

Two of his sons were . attacked. One killed a snake which coiled around his leg.

The other shot a snake which twice struck at his gumboot.

. A fox terrier, which had a local reputation as .a snake-killer, was bitten

and killed during the

hunt.

The Thompsons killed 12 snakes in less than an . hour.
