A 12 –year–old girl safely escaped after she discovered a large king cobra inside her house in Ban Bueang this week.
Rescue workers were notified of the king cobra at a house in the Klong Giw sub-district earlier this week.
The rescue workers arrived at the house to find the 2.50 meter long King cobra inside a room in the house. It took about 40 minutes for the rescue workers to carefully catch the king cobra with a snake snare.
The 12 year- old girl, whose name was withheld due to her age, told rescue workers she was doing laundry at the back of the house. She went back into another room in the home before she discovered the king cobra. She ran away from the house and called for help from her uncle.
Mr. Somphong Moonkaew, 29, told the press “My niece ran to me after she saw the cobra and said there was a snake in the home. I thought it would be a smaller snake and was quite surprised to see it was a king cobra.
Some locals said this was their first time to see a large king cobra in the area. Most king cobras are generally reported in the Southern part of Thailand, although they can be found across the country. The king cobra was released back to a forest in the Chonburi area.
