Though Nababan survived the python’s attack, his hand was badly injured and the doctors “might have to cut it off,” the police chief told the media.

The villagers then displayed the python’s body in the village before chopping it, frying it and feasting on it.

The police chief said that he was not surprised that the python was as it is considered to be really tasty. “I have heard from friends that they are really tasty. I mean it’s a 7 metre snake… That’s a lot of meat,” he added.

Giant pythons are commonly found in Indonesia and the Philippines.
