This is the stomach churning moment a 15ft long python regurgitated a farmer’s champion fighting rooster. Nut Wattana had noticed two of his best cocks were missing when he woke up at home in Pathum Thani, Thailand, on December 27. He thought they had fled their coop but was horrified when he noticed the python hanging from the roof with an enormous bulge in its belly.
Mr Wattana, a chicken breeder, called rescuers who carefully prized the snake from the rafters before laying it on the ground and waiting for it to regurgitate the rooster. Footage shows the reptile slowly spit out the dead rooster, which emerges covered in slime. The other bird was found dead nearby.
Mr Wattana said the two birds had cost him 30,000 Thai Baht (£690). ‘I didn’t hear the sound of the two cocks in the morning, so I went to look for them,’ Mr Wattana said. ‘I can’t save the birds now. They were two of my favourites. Thankfully I have a lot more roosters and chickens.’ He added: ‘I forgive the snake because it was just its natural instinct.’
The python was given time to recover then bagged up and driven away to a jungle, where it was released. A python typically takes around two weeks to digest a rooster of that size. They can survive for several weeks without another snack if they’re not disturbed.
