(22 September) A
professional snake catcher was called to Bangkok University today after 4-metre python was found
hiding under a student′s car.
The student, Ms. Yosita Namwong, told our correspondent that
she was surprised when she saw a number of students surrounded her car.
She then asked a
member of the university security team what was going on, and he told her that a 4-metre
python had taken shelter under her Toyata Yaris.
Mr. Amnaj Saengsawang, a snake catcher from
Pathum Thani province, was alerted by the security to retrieve the snake. After it had been
encircled for an hour, the snake was caught and will later be released into the wild.
security team member said he suspected that the floods around the university campus had driven the
snake to flee into university area for shelter.
