Rescuers find python under man’s home after cats go missing
Snake rescuers in Thailand had an epic hour-long tug-of-war with a python that had been living under a house for over a year - slowly killing off the owner's pet cats. Pensioner Ruang Peung, 65, called the emergency services last Friday night (November 23) after he caught sight of the serpent slithering out of his back door. One of his cats had also disappeared the same day. Animal handlers in Chachoengsao Province, east of Bangkok, arrived and began searching for the snake, which was discovered curled up under the foundations of the wooden home. They spent over an hour trying to yank the determined reptile free, but it had stubbornly wrapped itself around a beam inside its hiding place.
