Animal control officers in Sattahip had to dig under the floor of a home to catch a giant python that has been eating local chickens.
Sawang Rojanathammasathan Foundation officers responded to the home of Boonsom Ramnutch, the 71-year-old owner of Ramnutch 1 Village in Moo 6 village Sept. 30.
The six officers could only spot the very end tail section of the snake as it slithered under the house surrounded by large trees. After trying to remove the snake, the workers realized it had eaten a chicken and its fat midsection was stuck.

After excavating more soil, they managed to free the snake, which turned out to be four meters long and 90 kilograms in weight.
Boonsom said he and his wife had gone to another province and left three bantams at home. When he came back and found that all bantams were missing with only bloody feathers remaining, he looked around and found the sleepy python digesting its chicken dinner.
