Giant snake caught hiding inside a car’s console


Cars can sometimes fail to start due to a number of reasons – typically due to issues with the engine or battery.

However, in certain situations, the car’s problems can actually stem from a creature being stuck in the engine.

Undoubtedly, in this unexpected scenario, a trained animal handler is the only person who will be able to deal with the situation.

Here’s the story of a snake catcher in Prachuap Khiri Khan who helped rescue a ~3M snake from being permanently stuck in a car’s dashboard.

In the video, the man is seen having to remove the dashboard in order to withdraw the serpent from the car’s console.

The animal was said to be very strong and powerful. The snake’s removal had completely exhausted the man as well as others who assisted in the rescue.

Translation: It would be easier for him to remove the snake if he cut the snake into pieces.

Another netizen suggested that the snake catcher dissect the python into pieces, so he could withdraw the reptile easily.


Good fortune might await car’s owner


We really hope that the reptile has already returned safely into nature and learned an important lesson in his life.

Also, we feel sorry for the car’s owner because he cannot sue the animal who ruined his car for damage fees. But, perhaps he may win the lottery afterwards. Who knows?
