rescue worker finally manages to restrain the python’s head.
Why did the python cross the road? Sattahip residents
may never know, as authorities had to scoop a 4-meter-long snake off
Sukhumvit Road because it was blocking the passage of some unnamed
Sawang Rojanathamsathan Foundation animal experts
were called Oct. 17 when police guarding the procession of “VIPs” saw
the giant python was blocking traffic by slowly slithering across the
road opposite Soi Kulab. The reptile drew lots of attention from drivers
of blocked motorbikes and cars. But with more important people on the
way, police decided they needed to clear the roadway.
Snake catchers attempted to remove the python, but it
retreated to some high grass. It was caught about 10 minutes later and
was taken to an unpopulated area near Soi Kaopet.
