7-feet-long python caught while unloading rice at godown in TVM
Malayinkeezh (Thiruvananthapuram): It is common to find small worms in rice provided by ration shops. But the labourers found a giant python while unloading rice sacks from a lorry at the Supplyco godown in Machel.
The porters found the snake while unloading Matta rice brought from Ernakulam on Friday morning. Though depot manager contacted Vava Suresh to catch the snake, he was not available. Hence they called fireforce personnel.
The fireforce sought help of Prabhath Saji of Poojappura Snake Park. He came and caught the snake later. The 7-feet-long snake is about 2 years old. It was shifted to the Snake Park. The python will be handed over to the forest department on Saturday, Saji said.
