A 4 metre long python has been carefully extracted from a car in Chon Buri’s central city district. It took rescue workers around 2 hours to locate and remove the reluctant reptile. Earlier, the snake was spotted by an unnamed local motorist, who stopped traffic to let the python safely cross Bypass Road in the Huay Kapi area. Afterwards it made its way to a car parked at a nearby house and slithered inside.

Rescue workers and a professional snake handler were called to remove the animal. Parts of the sedan had to be disassembled to get at the the snake, which had slithered deep into the vehicle.

Rescue staff report that the python was later released into a nearby forest, healthy and in good condition, but probably bemused from its day of vehicular adventures.

    Take it to Pattaya.
    Hang it around tourists’ necks = while there are tourists left – and charge them B300 for a photograph.
    Sounds farcical?
    No it used to happen.

Since March, the city of Lopburi has battled monkey riots, as the Covid-19 pandemic dried up tourism, and thus, the primates’ main food source.

Residents in the tourist town are afraid to leave their homes due to the vicious creatures, who have set up headquarters in an abandoned cinema […]

In the high season of 2018/2019 a water shortage emerged on Phuket and reached a critical phase just as the wet season of 2019 began. For a few months there seemed to be more water trucks delivering expensive water to residents than tourist passenger vans on the road (usually ubiquitous). Phuket’s three water sources were critically low, one of them had been empty for months. With no real remedial actions been taken in the following 12 months, another water shortage was assured for the 2019/2020 tourist season. But the tourist numbers were down for the annual high season, then the […]
