But 9News can reveal today that the Coles Express staff did not call for help and that the rescue appears to be merely a stunt.
“They are deadly, you get bitten by a tiger snake and it’s pretty intense … they’re quite erratic,” he said then.
And police are now investigating the matter. Mr Hoser could face charges of reckless conduct.
Mr Hoser today admitted to 9News the snake was his own and he had mocked up the photos.
