Snake catcher wrestles python, causing it to lose its lunch, vomits up a whole chicken

Another python rescued by Nick Evans was less than pleased about being caught. According to Briefly News, snake catcher Jason Arnold was called out to a remote location to help remove a snake. When he got there, he discovered a large python inside a goat cage.

The snake was lethargic and had clearly eaten something. Jason suspected that it was a chicken. He gently removed the large serpent from the cage, but due to the tight confines and size of the snake, things got a bit tricky.

He was worried that the snake might bite him when he removed it from the cage, but it went quite smoothly. Jason was careful not to upset the python and force it to regurgitate the chicken it had eaten.

Unfortunately, the stress was too much and the snake regurgitated the chicken, and once the bird was out of its stomach it moved very fast.
