Huge 16ft python caught from under Indonesia house after preying on local livestock

A huge five-metre (16ft) long python is caught underneath a house in East Kalimantan, Indonesia, on May 20.

According to local residents, the snake was seen since two weeks ago, since then locals have lost cats and chickens. They suspect that the missing livestock was eaten by the python.

Joko Iswanto, Samarinda Taruna Info volunteer coordinator, told reporters: "The snake reappears after sunset, after breaking fast."

Snake catchers arrived and found the python in the pond under the house. They were forced to curl down under the house to catch the python.

They dragged the serpent into the open before it was wrapped up and driven away to be relocated in a nearby jungle.
