Wildlife expert caring for big cats and cobras

2 1 21

Cat-sitting a cougar is unusual for most people - but that's just another day in the life of Kevin Murphy.

The 42-year-old wildlife expert deals with escaped 20ft boa constrictors during the day, then comes home to find a puma on the sofa.

Mr Murphy, who runs Norfolk Wildlife Rescue from his home in Norwich, often gets called upon to help people with their exotic pets.

And recently he has to bring his work home.

The independent wildlife advisor said he has been interested in working with animals since he was child.

Mr Murphy took a trip down memory lane to recall his strangest encounters.

1. Boa constrictor

Being called to recover a 20ft snake which can "squeeze you to death and swallow you whole" sounds terrifying........
