Giant snake has feast of a lifetime

For a while yesterday, a giant 5-metre-long snake, had the feast of its life.

The giant snake entered a cage of rabbits outside a house in Pathum Thani province.  Thus, instead of having to catch its food in the wild, its meal was right there in front of it.

Twenty-three rabbits were in the cage. By the time, Thatree Krinta, the owner of the house, discovered what was going on, only ten were left.

"I tried to get the snake out of the cage by hitting it with a stick but it didn't do any good so I called rescue officers," he said.

The rescue officers took the reptile to a snake farm in Si Mum Muang area and it will later be taken to a natural habitat in Khao Yai.
