WATCH: Man filmed throwing snake around at Gold Coast creek

A GOLD Coast snake catcher has labelled the actions of a man caught on video throwing a python around at a packed Gold Coast creek on the weekend as "immoral and illegal".

On Sunday afternoon Brisbane local Indy Davies was nursing a hangover with his friends at Tallebudgera Creek when a man showed up and started playing with a carpet python.

"This fellow walked down with a snake wrapped around shoulders and a VB tallie in hand. He was drinking his beer and talking to everyone and himself," Mr Davies said.

There's currently a bloke down here drinking a VB tally and chucking his pet snake around. Amazing

"He got into the water and picked the snake up and chucked it in.

"Everyone split from the beach, kids were screaming, lots of parents screaming 'Get out of the water! He has a snake!'."
