140kg python caught after making a meal of goat

ALOR SETAR: After a filling meal in the form of a large goat, a python became motionless, making it possible for the Civil Defence Force (APM) to catch the 7m reptile.

The hefty 140kg python was caught after it was found in a goat pen.

The Kubang Pasu Civil Defence Force said, in a statement Thursday (Oct 19), that it had received a report that there was a large python in a goat pen in Kampung Guar Batu Hitam here.

"We received the report at 8.23am and reached the scene shortly after.

"There were four of us at the scene and we noticed the python had swallowed a goat that was in the pen near the complainant's house.

"It did not take long for us to catch it,” the statement read.

It took around 25 minutes to capture the python, which measured 7m long and weighed 140kg.

"The reptile has been handed over to the state wildlife department," it said.
