The scourge of Far Northern chooks
Forget the 2.7m carpet python in a toilet bowl! Pythons were out raiding chook pens last week. Among them was a 6m scrub (amethystine) python that was sprung going after the chickens on a property in Koah. It had already taken on a turkey. The snake was released a safe distance from the pen.
