MIRI: Guess who went against the social distancing rule? A 14-foot snake.
The 4.2m reptile stunned a family of six in a village here when it slithered into their house while they were resting at home on Tuesday evening.
“The huge snake made its way to the sofa, ” said Miri Civil Defence Unit chief Kapt Mohd Hazle Sha.
He said the family, who lives in Kampung Siwak Jaya in the Bakam sub-district located along the Miri-Bintulu highway, had to call for help.
“They called our emergency line and we sent out a team to the site and saw a long snake beneath the sofa, ” he added.
It took the team of four men more than an hour to capture the snake.
