Huge python caught by villagers in West Sumatra in Indonesia

Residents of a village in Indonesia caught a giant python in their rice fields on Saturday 28 November. People in Lagan Gadang Village, South Coast District in West Sumatra appeared to tie the snake's mouth and hold its tail to prevent it coiling up, so that it could be put in a sack more easily. One local, Ari, said the python was about 5 metres long and that he thought it was likely to have been dragged into the fields by the flow of local rivers swollen by heavy rain. The residents handed over the snake to the Natural Resources Conservation Agency who will release it into the forest.
