A 9.9-feet-long python weighting around 11.34 kg was rescued from a residential area in Guwahati’s East Jyotinagar, Bamunimaidam road.
The giant snake entered into the residential building of Assam based entrepreneur Ranjit Baruah in the wee hours of October 15th, 2019. After it was spotted by one of the family members they informed the forest department and a team reached the spot and rescued the reptile.
“The snake first entered our residential building and slowly moved towards our godown at around 3 am. We spotted the python and somehow managed to lock it inside and informed the forest department. Today morning the officials came and rescued the wild,” said Baruah while speaking to TIME8.
The forest officials after a medical examination are reported to release the snake into the state zoo.
