“This is absolutely incredible, it’s a real miracle,” she said.
“I’ve never seen anything like this.”
The couple said they decided to leave the land as a way to protect the wildlife they were trying to protect, but the snakes have returned.
The couple also had to pay for the fence and a new pond.
“It’s a big thing to have your own backyard, to protect your backyard and not have to pay the price,” said Mina, who has two daughters aged three and five.
“We’ve been living on the land for almost 20 years and the last couple of years we’ve had our own wildlife.”
I know it’s not easy to live here, but it’s worth it because it’s ours, we’re going to keep it.
“But we’re trying to get our life back.”
