A deadly red-bellied black snake had to be rescued by experts at the Australian Reptile Park, north of Sydney after the snake - like so many of us - had a rough run-in with bourbon.

MORE SNAKES ALIVE!

In the 40 second video posted by intrepid animal wrangler Tim Faulkner, the venomous reptile is found neck deep in the Woodstock bourbon can, slithering desperately in an attempt to escape its alcoholic trap.

The team soon have the snake in for treatment, carefully snipping the can around its head.

On Facebook, Mr Faulkner said the snake did not have any cuts caused by the can, so it did not need help from a specialised vet.
