Snake wranglers ride away with reptile carried around their neck
This is the amusing moment a snake wrangler had to drive away with a snake wrapped round his neck.
The rescue team were contacted to catch the reptile in a house in Kamphang Phet, central Thailand.
After they caught the 10ft long rat snake they then realised that they forgot to bring a sack to carry it in back to the jungle.
Footage shows the two men sitting on a motorcycle together with the snake resting on the rider’s shoulders.
The rescuer said they had to carry the serpent that way because they forgot a sack to catch it and there was no other option.
He said: “We already asked the home owner to find a possible container but there was none.
“So we had to carry the snake by hand or release it near the house, which would have been risky.”
