A wildlife center or animal control are probably good bets.

Thank you so much Lisa, I guess we need training. In that case,maybe seek help from somebody? Like wild life centre,police,animal control?

Hi Hema,
I have a special snake hook that I use to safely move them and for larger venomous species, I have a set of special snake tongs that I have been trained to use properly.
