Indonesia: In central Indonesia, a tragic incident occurred when a 45-year-old woman from Indonesian village of Kalempang in South Sulawesi province was killed by a 16-foot python, local agencies reported on Saturday. The woman had informed her husband on Thursday that she was going to sell chilies to a collector. However, when she didn’t return, her husband and relatives launched a search for the woman.

The following morning, a python was discovered near the woman’s abandoned belongings. The villagers, including the woman’s husband, killed the snake and cut it open. According to agencies, the husband became suspicious after finding his wife’s belongings, leading to the discovery of the python with a swollen belly. Tragically, upon cutting open the snake’s stomach, the woman was found fully clothed inside.

While such incidents are exceptionally rare, Indonesia has witnessed several fatalities in recent years due to pythons. In a similar incident last year, residents in Indonesian Southeast Sulawesi’s Tinanggea district killed an 8-meter python after it was discovered strangling and consuming a farmer. Additionally, in 2018, a 54-year-old woman was found dead inside a 7-meter python in Southeast Sulawesi’s Muna Indonesian town. Furthermore, a farmer in Indonesian region of West Sulawesi had gone missing a year earlier and was later discovered to have been consumed by a 4-meter python at an Indonesian palm oil plantation.

These incidents serve as tragic reminders of the potential dangers posed by large pythons in regions where they coexist with humans.
