Python Wrapped Round Electricity Post Sparks Panic
A python sparked panic in Thailand's red light district after it was seen coiled around a 25ft high electricity pole.
The serpent slithered onto the high voltage cables in the Walking Street area of Pattaya, Thailand, just after midnight.
Shocked tourists gathered below and pointed at the yellow, black and grey 7ft long reptile. Rescue workers arrived and climbed onto billboards to try to catch the snake, but they were afraid of being electrocuted.
Police later used a cherry picker to ascend and yank the stubborn python from its position before pulling it down to safety below.
Onlookers cheered and posed for pictures when the snake was finally captured.
