Fierce snake caught hiding in family’s laundry
A fierce rat snake was caught after hiding in a stack of clothes in a laundry room in central Thailand.
Footage shows the rescue team helping a local take the snake out of the house in Phetchaburi province.
The reptile specialists were using catching gear to calm the snake down when it was trying to bite them. They pinned it down by the tail while it was trying to slither away.
They spent around five minutes catching the snake and stuffing it into a sack before taking it back into the jungle far away from the village.
One rescuer said: “No one was harmed because it was a non-venomous snake, but humans can have a deep cut if they are bitten.”
