Encounters with giant snakes and humans are becoming far too common. See our viral story from just yesterday: Monster 16-Foot Python Caught in Florida Breaks Record; Over a Ton Found, Literally. This story has a much sadder ending.
From the Barcroft TV YouTube description:
“Maths teacher Sebastien Bascoules captured a massive 17ft anaconda which ate his friend’s dog in French Guiana. The 39-year-old old wrestled the huge serpent out of a river close to his friend’s house, blindfolded it and left it in his bathtub over night. With the help of his friends and young sons Sebastien then released the 175lb anaconda into a large river six miles away.”
