Villagers in southeast China's Fujian Province finally tracked down the culprit responsible for stealing their livestock – it turned out to be a giant python. They saw the 4.2-meter-long and 30.5-kilogram python swallowing a goat, all of which was captured on video by one of the villagers in Anxi county.
The local forestry police, quarantine officers and a snake handler immediately rushed to the scene to examine the reptile.
"The python had already swallowed a goat that weighed over 40 kilograms, so its belly was swollen. It could barely move since the goat was too heavy. So it spit out the goat, attempting to escape. Then we put it in a bag and took it to our snake zoo for preservation," said Xie Haiyong, a snake handler.
The python was later sent to a snake farm, much to the relief of the villagers.
