An Indonesian villager, Wa Tiba (54) was swallowed by a python on June 15.
This is the second time in barely a year’s time that a villager became prey to a python.
Muna Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Agung Ramos Paretongan Sinaga said Wa Tiba, who was a housewife disappeared on Thursday night after she went to inspect her corn plantation, about a half mile from her house, as per The Jakarta Post.
The field is surrounded by cliffs, caves and a certain number of reticulated pythons.
Wa Tiba wanted to check the plantation as wild boars often destroyed the crops.
When by 6 am the next day she had not returned home, her sister went to look out for her at the plantation.
She found Tiba’s footprints, a torch, her machete and slippers.
She then immediately sought assistance from the locals.
At around 9:30 am, residents found a 23 feet long python near the plantation. It was so bloated that it could barely move.
The locals killed the snake. On dissecting its stomach, they found Wa Tiba’s body.
