An 8-foot –long Indian rock python was found in transport plane at Airforce station in Agra. The python was trapped inside the undercarriage bay of the right wing of the AN-32 aircraft- number K-2706.
Later, a Wildlife SOS team rescued it in five hours. The python was kept under observation of veterinary doctors.
A team comprising two expert snake-rescuers from the NGO arrived at the scene but it took them nearly five hours to extricate the distressed python.
They said it was a challenge for them to ensure the large constrictor remained calm and unhurt.

“We had to get the python out of that narrow space keeping its safety in mind. We patiently waited for the snake to loosen its grip so that we could carefully transfer it to a transport carrier- (special-designed transport boxes),” an SOS official said. (With PTI Inputs)
