May 10, 2018

This was the moment a trapped python was rescued after getting stuck for two hours in a drain. The snake tried to slither through the hole in the concrete slab yesterday (May 9) in Chonburi, Thailand. But the serpent became stuck mid-way through the narrow opening and was seen writhing around by residents. Rescue workers arrived and hacked away at the concrete before sliding the reticulated python back out of the blue plastic pipe at 6pm.Snake catcher Chokchai Pompam said: ''The python was very weak when he was freed. It had lost a lot of energy because it was stuck for a long time.''The snake was checked over by vets and after getting back its strength was released back into nearby jungle.
