Recently, a group of emergency preparedness volunteers were called to a family’s home in Srisoonthorn, Phuket, to help catch a 3-meter-long python.
Nopparit Rungrueng, who is the head of the Srisoonthorn sub-district led the team of snake seekers / catchers.
The volunteers arrived at the house just before noon and began to search for the snake, which was spotted by the family as the snake slipped behind their house. Volunteers quickly located the 10-foot reptile, although it was not reported where the snake was or what it was doing when they found it.
Nopparit says it took a lot longer to catch the snake than it did to find it. He has confirmed its length of 3 meters and says the python, which has the appearance of a Burmese python but has not been confirmed as such, will be released into the jungle. He tried to allay public fears of running into the snake, which measures nearly two Danny Devitos, by saying the jungle is far from any residential area in the Khao Phra Thaeo in Thalang.
Last month, a python went viral after being caught in a drain cover in Si Racha.
