Big snake caught choking the chicken in Phuket

PHUKET: A Phuket resident woke with a start in the middle of the night Tuesday after a python started dining in his chicken coop.

“I heard my chickens panicking, so I went to the henhouse to see what was wrong,” Thanarat Manlin told the Phuket Gazette.

“I was so shocked when I peeked inside and saw a big python killing my chickens.”

Mr Thanarat immediately called Kusoldram Foundation rescue workers, who arrived at the Thalang house within about 10 minutes.

Rescue workers took about 30 minutes to capture the 1.2-meter long constrictor.

The snake was released in a forested area far from any communities, a rescue worker said.
