Ban Bueng –
A three -meter-long king cobra was caught by a local resident at a house in the Ban Bueng district yesterday.
Rescue workers were notified of the king cobra at a house in the Klong Giw sub-district village yesterday afternoon, April 21st, 2021.
The rescue workers arrived at the house to find the king cobra had been captured inside a large jar outside the house in question.
The king cobra had also been slightly injured and was bleeding but workers said it was not life threatening. Rescue workers carefully removed the king cobra from the jar and found it was more than three meters long.
Mr. Thongterm Sarasiri, 40, told associated Thai press, “I found the king cobra resting inside my house. I used a robe to capture it before putting it inside a jar while waiting for rescue workers to take it back to a nearby forest.”
Ban Bueng police stated the cobra, although very slightly injured, would survive the incident and be released to a rural forest away from the house.
