Let that be a lesson to you! Man kills python and parades it around the market
Thai media reported that a man in Chiang Mai had caused quite a stir at a market in Mae Rim after he arrived to get his lunch with a two meter python draped round his neck.
The man killed the snake because it had gobbled up three of his chickens.
He said he was parading it around the market so that it would serve as an example to other snakes.
He planned to go to the Mae Rim police to report what he had done and explain himself.
Pythons are a protected species and the man can expect a fine for his actions.
The incident happened at the Ban Mae Sa market in the northern Thai province.
