Wild python caught after eating pet rabbit

This large python was caught after eating a family's pet rabbit.

Owner Thiraphong Amsarika, 31, went to feed his cuddly white companion when he was shocked to see it was missing.

Instead, there was a four-metre-long python with a bulge in its belly curled up in the rabbit hutch.

Devastated Thiraphong called the emergency services who dragged the reptile into the yard and stuffed it into a bag.

Thiraphong said: ''I went to take food to my favourite rabbit but he was not there. I was shocked because there was a big python there. I hurriedly ran away before calling to inform the authorities.''
