This is the moment a British snake expert captures a 13-foot python found among clutter in a villager’s home and puts the huge serpent in a bag.
The startling incident occurred when businessman and snake expert Dave Willott, a British ex-pat who has been living in Hong Kong for 10 years according to local media, was reportedly called to the small town of Sha Tau Kok in the North District of Hong Kong.
Reports say the police had called Willott after locals had found the huge Burmese python (Python bivittatus) in a pile of clutter in one of their home.

In the video, a man in a purple t-shirt can be seen holding a bag and looking under the clutter for the snake.
The man reported as Willott, standing across from the man in purple, can be heard saying “are you ready to get around this end” as he lifts the clutter before grabbing the python’s head.
He lifts the head with two hands to reveal the huge four-metre (13-foot) python and his companion then grabs the serpent’s tail.
Willott works to tie a bag around the snake’s head before coxing its whole body inside by slapping it.
He then secures the bag before conversing with the locals in their native tongue.
Local media report the huge snake was handed over to workers at the Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden conservation centre.
The Burmese python is one of the five largest species of snakes in the world and is native to a large area of tropical South and Southeast Asia.
