Locals Eat Giant Python After it Attacked Local Indonesian Man
A security guard nearly lost an arm in a brutal battle with a 25ft python - which was later chopped up and fried by hungry Indonesian villagers.
Robert Nababan crossed paths with the giant creature while patrolling an oil palm plantation in the remote Batang Gansal subdistrict of Sumatra island.
Police say the 37-year-old tried to catch the giant python and stuff it in a gunny sack. But the huge serpent fought back and bit him on his left arm, nearly severing it from his body.
Local reports said there was a desperate struggle before villagers rushed to his aid, hitting the snake with a log and saving his life.
Nababan was then rushed to a hospital in a neighbouring town for treatment.
Hungry locals killed the snake and displayed its body in the village before dicing it up, frying it and feasting on it.
