As Thai pythons go, it wasn’t so big, but the snake slithering along the roof of a roadside shelter in Jomtien Beach was still enough to send residents and local dog into a tizzy.
Sawang Boriboon animal rescue officers took about 30 minutes to round up the 1.4-meter python at the entrance to Thepprasit Road Soi 9 June 11. It was released into the wild away from people.
Rescue workers attempt to get the slippery intruder out of its perch.
A neighborhood dog was the first to spot the reptile, as it rolled around the tin roof of the roadside shack. The dog’s frantic barking brought villagers who gawked and backed off each time the snake dropped its head from its perch.
