Is this the world's best dressed snake catcher?

NEVER mess with a woman dressed to kill.

Or at least catch a snake.

Snake catcher Lisa Harrap was just about out the door for a Melbourne Cup function when she got the call a dugite - a highly venomous snake - was terrorising a family home in Perth.

Knowing time was not on her side, Harrap rushed over to the house and tackled the serpent in the most stylish of fashions.

In a video viewed over 5,000 times, Harrap, wearing a 1950s-style dress and high heels, chases the snake around the driveway of the house and, successfully, corners it in the garage.

This is the second consecutive time a well-dressed Harrap has been called out on job after she was desperately needed during last year's Melbourne Cup.
