A very large snake was rescued from Bangkok. The reticulated Python of over 5 meters was found in the kitchen of a family in the suburbs of Bangkok. The snake scared the people in the house and they asked neighbors to help and remove the snake.
After hitting on it with metal sticks to scare it away the snake had severe wounds and the Bangkok Metropolitan Authority was called in to help out.
The officials did manage to get the snake into a moving enclosure and took it to the Bangbon municipality while waiting for the WFFT rescue team to arrive with the Care for the Wild mobile wildlife clinic. When Dr Mark Jones arrived at the scene the injuries were found to be too large and deep to have the snake released immediately.
The snake is currently in the care of the clinic at the rescue center and will need approximately 2 months to recover.
