Ban Bueng –

Two large pythons were rescued after becoming stuck in a discarded fishing net near a canal in Ban Bueng this week.

Rescue workers were notified by a farmer, who wasn’t named, of the two pythons caught in a fishing net at a barn in Nong Samsark behind a chicken coop.

Once rescue workers arrived at the scene they found the two pythons stuck in the green fish netting, struggling to escape. It took about forty minutes to free the reptiles from their predicament.

Mr. Suphonchai Chatngern, 47, told rescue staff at the scene, “The pythons had reportedly broken into the chicken coop hunting for food and were chased off by the farmer. However, they ended up stuck in fishing netting behind the home and were unable to extradite themselves. The farmer called us for assistance to free the pythons. We managed to carefully free them before letting them return back to their natural habitat.”

The pythons were not harmed and were released into the nearby jungle by the rescue staff, warning the farmer to keep a closer eye on his chicken coop as well as debris in the canal on his property.
