Mozambican who walked with snake around neck detained


Mozambican police have detained an 18-year old man in the central city of Chimoio for walking around with a live snake wrapped around his neck.

Brito António Tiofa caused huge astonishment and curiosity. Large crowds gathered to see him with the snake, while some even followed him, causing traffic jams.

He was detained for “disturbance of public order”, police said.

Mr Tiofa said he was a snake breeder who owned more than 60 snakes.

“There are people who raise chickens, ducks, dogs, cattle and pigs, but not me, I raise snakes like any animal in my house,” he said.
