Creeping Phuket python shows up for breakfast

PHUKET: A Phuket restaurant owner heard a two-meter python noisily working its way over the roof of his establishment as he was preparing to open yesterday morning.

“The owner explained that he was cleaning when he heard a strange noise coming from the roof. When he took a peek to find the source of the noise he spotted a big yellow python,” Rawai Municipality officer Chuyawat Kaewphul told the Phuket Gazette.

Rawai Municipality officers were contacted at about 8am. They scrambled to organize a team and rushed to the restaurant.

With a little finagling, officers were able to lift the snake from the roof with a large metal bar and then bag it.

“We released the snake in a forested area in Chalong that is far from any communities,” Mr Chuyawat said.
