MIRI, March 14: A worker at a Japanese restaurant in Permyjaya probably has to thank her lucky stars that a supervisor of a fast-food outlet next door noticed that her car was “broken into” on Tuesday.

Otherwise, it is anybody’s guess what could happen next with the “intruder” still inside the vehicle.

While on duty, the supervisor spotted a two-metre python slithering into the car, which was parked in front of the fast-food outlet, from a nearby bush.

She immediately called up Miri Civil Defence Force (APM), and three APM personnel promptly arrived at 5.51pm.

When the APM boys opened the car’s bonnet, the snake was curled inside, and it took them some 20 minutes to catch it.

“The snake slithered into the car probably due to the hot weather,” reckoned the supervisor. — DayakDaily
