Youngsters carry giant 14ft-long python caught in forest in Indonesia

This is the shocking moment youngsters carried a giant 14ft-long python that was caught in a forest in Indonesia.

Footage shows the young men hauling the reptile back to their village while it was strapped to a wooden pole in West Sumatra.

Yunus Saelach said he and his friends were looking for pigs in the forest when the snake tried to attack them so they fought it off.

He said: ‘This snake tried to attack us and our dogs but our brave pets fought it to protect us. We had to kill it or we would have been injured.’
