Pickled snakes are the most commonly found preserved animals, put inside alcoholic drinks in China, such as rice wine.
This common practice in China is quite popular, however, there are occasionally consequences to this bottling trait. On October 14 or 15, 2002 a man was attacked by a pickled snake. Opening his bottle on his lunch break, the snake sprank out, biting him on the neck. Li, the victim of this accident, was taken to a Suizhou hospital, and was not in any danger from the actions. The Xin Bao newspaper said the bottle's stopper was made from wood or cork and allowed air into the vessel, helping the snake to survive for a year

A Hamilton woman who threw pickled kittens at a police officer, after her pickled snakes were confiscated, is hopeful the snakes will be returned next week.

Susan Hoskyn's two preserved snakes were confiscated after they were found in her Boundary Rd home on Sunday.

Police were called to the property after Ms Hoskyn was injured during a domestic argument.

Ms Hoskyn said police saw some cannabis plants and searched the property. They called in Agriculture and Forestry Ministry staff to take away the pickled snakes she had owned for more than five years.

When Ms Hoskyn found the snakes gone she went to the Hamilton police station and threw two kittens preserved in formaldehyde at an officer behind the counter. The public counter was closed over Sunday and Monday morning so it could be cleaned.

Ms Hoskyn was arrested for disorderly behaviour and is due to appear in the Hamilton District Court on December 6.

Ms Hoskyn said yesterday she had been told by Maf staff that if she wrote a letter outlining how she came into possession of the snakes she might have them back within a week. "The snakes were bought back by a returned serviceman after the war. I use the snakes and the kittens, still-born from our cat, in Halloween displays."

Ms Hoskyn said she had a spiritual connection with snakes.
