12-foot python caught in Toa Payoh

SINGAPORE : A 12-foot python caused a stir at Block 212, Lorong 8 Toa Payoh on Thursday evening.
The python had been sighted more than 10 days ago but residents believed it had been hiding in a water pipe.

An odd-job labourer and his friend who tried to catch the python then, were successful this time round - when they managed to lure it out with a slab of meat.

The police were called in and the snake was put in a sack and taken away. - CNA/de

Well, a few Chinese restaurants in NYC were serving cat meat in the name of chicken! :o
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Snake and chicken? Yes, fairly similar. Had to go to Taipei almost weekly a few years back and was introduced to snake (in snake alley), monkey and the rest there - <puke> did NOT partake in the monkey . . .

Yeah, i wonder what's wrong with snails too. I tasted snails in Paris. Nice and tender, goes great with wine! Hmm, wonder if we can get it in Singapore? I heard they starved the snails for a month before cooking them, is that true?
