Cambodian man volunteers to catch python for Thais by biting its tail
12 October 2017
Early yesterday morning, rescuers in Samut Prakarn responded to a call from the security guards of Thai Central Chemical Company, who found a python hidden in the engine of the company’s pickup truck.
But the snake kept crawling away from the rescuers and wrapped itself tightly around the car’s undercarriage, so a [Cambodian] migrant worker employed by the company, identified only as “Rathit,” stepped in to help. He said it was an ancient Cambodian method to bite on the serpent’s tail several times so it would let go.
While we absolutely cannot vouch for its Cambodian origins, the tail-biting technique worked in the end, as the snake gave up, and Rathit pulled it out from under the car.
