A snake has been recovered from St James's Gate in Dublin after apparently arriving in a container of empty Guinness kegs from Texas.

Guinness Brewery called the Dublin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals after the snake was discovered.

It has been identified as a non-poisonous corn snake.

The juvenile snake is said to be underweight and dehydrated and will be cared for by a vet who identified it.
