10ft python dangling from roof removed by wildlife rescuer on ladder

A wildlife rescuer climbed up a ladder to remove a large python dangling on rafters.

Footage shows the volunteers fixing the steps under the roof before one of them climbed to extract the 10ft-long reptile and put it in a sack in Nakhon Pathom province, Thailand, earlier this year.

The species is one of the world's largest snakes and can eat cats, dogs, birds, rats and other snakes.
