According to reports, the villagers managed to capture the Giant python without special equipment or protective gear.

A woman in the background became the star of the widely circulated video with her high-pitched screams and exclamations as several men struggled to remove the python from the ditch.

Reports said that she was teased by villagers after shrieking her opinions on what they should do during the capture process.

Meanwhile, the Malaysian residents managed to catch the enormous snake although it is unclear what they did with it afterwards.

In the video footage, the villagers appear to use a long pole and rope to drag the huge reptile out of the ditch.

The disturbed python raises its head at one animal catcher as a woman in the background is heard shrieking.

At the end of the clip, several men shove the snake into a large sack.
