Krabi rescue workers yesterday (June 28) caught a six metre long python at a petrol station after the reptile had eaten a duck.

Three rescue workers from Krabi Pitak Pracha Foundation, along with a plucky local, took about 20 minutes to catch the python which weighed 56 kilograms at a gas station in Thab Prik.

Head of snake catcher team of the Foundation, Tongchai Wongwiwat, says, “We were notified by staff members of the gas station that a big python had eaten a duck in a farm just behind the gas station.”

“When we arrived at the scene we found that the python has hiding in a bush. We used a snake snare to catch it and then put it in a bag.”

“The python might have lived in the forest nearby. This time is rainy season and the python came out from the forest to eat the duck. The farmer told us he’d seen the python eat the duck… the python’s stomach was still swollen when we caught it.”

“I have caught about 100 snakes and this is the biggest one I have ever caught.”

An 8 year old Krabi girl is being treated in a hospital after being bitten by what is feared to be a venomous spider. According to a Nation Thailand report, the concern is mounting for the girl’s welfare due to the fact that another person from the same area died after being bitten by a spider.

The girl had initially been discharged from the hospital with medication but had to be re-admitted when she developed complications at home. Her mother, 31 year old Nuntana Thongperm, says that knowing someone else in the area died from a spider bite means she is very worried.

It’s understood that after being bitten by the spider, the girl developed nausea and fever. Her mother took her to Krabi’s Plaipraya Hospital, bringing the spider along for identification. However, there was nobody present who could identify the creature. The child was discharged with medication but, after developing swelling at the site of the bite and complaining about feeling worse, her mother took her back to the hospital.

Last week, a 51 year old Krabi woman was bitten by a suspected black widow spider. After initial treatment at a local clinic, she had to be admitted to intensive care after suffering a heart attack and lapsing into a coma.

Tourist and environment groups share concerns for new access piers for Maya Bay

Tourist and environment groups share concerns for new access piers for Maya Bay | The Thaiger

The Chairman of Krabi Tourism Industry Council has shared his concerns about new piers and landing facilities on Koh Phi Phi Ley after being made aware that the Department of National Parks had the initiative to build a pier so tourist can travel by foot to Loh Samah Bay area behind Maya Bay, Ao Nang Subdistrict, Muang District, Krabi.

Maya Bay remains closed to all visitors and access confined to boats passing by the entrance to the bay for a photo opportunity instead. The bay was attracting up to 6,000 people per day at the height of its popularity before authorities closed down access in June 2018.

The idea of the floating piers would allow tourists to disembark then walk from the rear of the island across raised boardwalks to arrive on the back of the beach. In the past tourists had arrived on boat and jumped ashore with the boats waiting either along the shore or anchoring in the bay.

Maya Bay was made famous in the 2000 movie “The Beach” with Leonardo diCaprio.

Even though Koh Phi Phi Ley, the smaller of the two Phi Phi islands, is in the Krabi province, most tourists accessed the island group from Phuket by either speed boat or scheduled ferry.

The Chairman says… “I am concerned about the impact on nature and the environment, where Loh Sama Bay is a dive site that consists of both shallow and deep corals, complete with beautiful, diverse species including soft corals, hard corals, sea anemones. Previously, tourists have consistently come to dive and inspect the beauty of coral reefs there.”

A Koh Phi Phi conservation group consisting of tour operators and local villagers have also previously submitted a proposal to the Department of National Parks voicing their concerns about the construction of the new infrastructure.

Pankham Kittithornkul, Chief of Ao Nang sub-district, says that he and local villagers have come to a conclusion to proceed with the construction to service Maya Bay with the exception during low season, closing the famous bay for nature to recover.

“The Department of National Parks has closed off the area to preserve the wide life but there is no news of the reopening of the bay, causing local people to lose revenue.”

“Previously the start of installation of the piers was recalled.”
