A wet and hungry python was captured at a Thepprasit Soi 5 home before it was able to feast on a chicken dinner.
Animal-control officers were called by Supoj Kaewsuwan Oct. 9, who found the 3-meter-long snake in his yard. Heavy rains have sent many snakes slithering out of hiding and this one was in a bamboo bush near a tree line.
The snake had retreated there after Supoj scared it away from his chicken coop. He said he was worried if he didn’t dispose of the python it could attack a small child.
It took officers about 30 minutes to round up the reptile, which was released far from kids and chickens.
Rescue workers were able to capture the python to release it into the wild.
