It took snake catchers 15 minutes to capture a 4 metre long python after a scrap dealer in Nonthaburi, just north of Bangkok, discovered it at his store in the province’s Pak Kret sub-district yesterday. The snake weighed in at 15 kilograms and the handlers say it put up a fierce fight, even breaking some of their equipment.

The dealer told the handlers this was the second time pythons had caused him problems, and that the first was even bigger. He noted that the pythons were hankering for some feline snacks and had eaten 20 of his cats.

The handlers reported that the serpent would have been even heavier, but it appeared not to have eaten for several days.

      Iv kept pythons all my life. From ball pythons to reticulated pythons. And all av different I’m guessing that these people av caught a reticulated constant feeding machine. Eat and grow larger on average reticulated pythons can grow 6ft per year in there first couple years of life and slow down as they get older. So a 4m snake probably around 4 to 5 years old . But will guarantee will be food for the village know one last question why would anyone av 20 cats. My be high rodant population. Would explain why the python was there

    Yes how do they know this was the guilty snake? Most pythons look alike.
    Unfair to snakes. They were only putting down an overpopulation of cats.
    Just a moment what is this dealer doing with 20 cats????
    My grandmother only had one!

A doctor representing 74 medical clinics yesterday petitioned the House of Representatives to investigate fraud allegations in patient access to Thailand’s universal health coverage scheme and ensure transparency in its implementation. The move follows an order by the Department of Health Service Support last week to temporarily close 2 Bangkok clinics for allegedly defrauding the scheme. That order came after 18 such facilities were accused of swindling 72 million baht from the scheme in patient claims. Dr Pongsak Srimusikapo met opposition parties, members of the House’s committee on corruption and misconduct suppression and other officials, and submitted a 6 point […]
