A large snake was spotted slithering by the roadside in Chiang Mai, sparking a flurry of comments from locals who have seen it before and are seeking solutions to the recurring issue.

Early yesterday, residents reported seeing a large snake along the canal road near the Mae Hia market intersection in Chiang Mai. The incident, which occurred yesterday, June 11, was captured in a video shared on เชียงใหม่ CM108 ข่าวเชียงใหม่ จังหวัดเชียงใหม่’ Facebook page.

The sighting drew numerous comments, with many expressing their fear and frustration. Some noted that the snake has been seen in the area for a long time.

“I’ve had goosebumps.”

“This snake has been around here for a while.”

“It’s often spotted in this area.”

It looks like the regular one seen at Chiang Mai University.”

Posts from children also mentioned frequent sightings.

One local pointed out that the snake resembled one seen near his house on June 5, which had eaten his cat.

“My neighbour said it looked like the one caught at her house last month.”

He had inquired with officials about where the snake was released, and they informed him it was let go at Doi Suthep. However, the snake returned to the city because there was no food in the forest, impacting pets and residents, reported KhaoSod.

“The authorities just capture and release it. Is there no better solution? Can they chip it? Is there a conservation area that won’t disturb the residents?”

In related news, a small snake caused a commotion at a petrol station in Lom Sak, Phetchabun, when it was discovered curled up by the fuel cap of a motorbike. The owner, who had stopped to refuel, was shocked by the unexpected visitor, prompting a call for rescue services.

At around 12.15am on June 11, the Sawang Mongkol Sathit Rescue Unit in Lom Sak received a report from a citizen in regards to a snake found inside a motorcycle seat at a petrol station.
