Woman Found In The Belly Of A Giant Python (Photos)
A 54-year-old Indonesian woman, Wa Tiba, who has been missing since Thursday, was found in the belly of a giant python after the swollen snake was seen around where she was last seen.
The seven-metre (23-foot) python was found bloated in the village of Persiapan Lawela on the island of Muna, offshore of Sulawesi.
The local police chief, Hamka, said:
“Residents were suspicious the snake swallowed the victim, so they killed it, then carried it out of the garden.
The snake’s belly was cut open and the body of the victim was found inside.”
Family members and residents began the search for the 54-year-old woman, when they realised she was missing. They found the snake about 30 metres away from Tiba’s sandals and machete.
The garden where she disappeared to was at the base of a rocky cliff, pockmarked by caves, and known to be home to snakes.
