Pol. Sr. Sgt. Maj. Amorn Nawari of the Najomtien Police Station was just about to unload his Isuzu D-Max when he found a note on the windshield with an ominous warning: “Please be careful, a snake has crawled into your car.”

Amorn immediately gathered coworkers with experience in catching snakes and, after opening the hood, they found the head of a boa constrictor poking out of the engine compartment. They gently and calmly used their bare hands to hold the snake’s head and very carefully pulled it out.

Bit by bit more of the snake was freed from the car. It took about 10 minutes until finally the 2-meter-long boa was freed and, by then, many curious folks had gathered around to witness the operation.

Amorn said he had parked his pickup truck in police station parking lot since the day before. This morning it was his shift and he needed to get several things from his car when he found the mysterious note.

The boa itself had sustained no injuries and was released back in to the wild.
