Darunda, 11, experienced a terrible heartbreak on April 3. The young Thai woman living in Pathum Thani (center) was starting to worry about her cat Ho Jun, who did not answer her calls. Entering the kitchen, the schoolgirl found herself facing a 3.5-meter-long python, sprawled out on the counter, a big bump in her stomach. Arrived in disaster, Darunda’s mother alerted the emergency services, who confirmed that the reptile had devoured the family cat.
“It’s heartbreaking. My daughter was looking for our cat in the house and in the garden, and then I heard her scream. When I saw what had happened, I shouted too (…) I couldn’t do anything other than hug my daughter and comfort her, ”says Kanchisa, who posted photos of the drama. on Facebook. Ho Jun, 3, was picked up by Darunda and his family as he wandered down the street. “I was terrified to see this python with something in its stomach. I imagine it went through a hole in the roof, ”explains Daomanee, the girl’s dad.
Volunteer firefighters were responsible for dislodging the snake before releasing it into the wild, more than 200 kilometers from the family’s home. Darunda is devastated, but a neighbor has promised to give her a purebred kitten worth several thousand dollars to replace her dear Ho Jun.
