Indonesian villagers eat python


Giant python attacks Indonesian man before being caught and eaten by villagers.

Security guard Robert Nababan encountered the snake on a palm oil plantation road in Sumatra’s remote Batang Gansal district on Saturday.

Mr Nababan tried to catch the python, reports say, which was 7.8m (26ft) long.
The snake attacked Mr Nababan, injuring his left arm, before he killed it with the help of other villagers.

Locals later killed the snake and displayed its body in the village before dicing it up, frying it and feasting on it.

Mr Nababan told Indonesian news outlet Detik: “I tried to catch it, my hand was bitten, and I managed to wrestle it.”
