The rescue foundation’s chief, Sayan Thammaphan, was called to he house, in Soi Pramote near Chalong Circle, at 5pm.

“The woman called us after she saw the cobra outside the house near where she washes her dishes,” Mr Sayan explained.

Mr Sayan had the cobra in hand within minutes after arriving at the home.

The snake was 1.5 metres long and weighed about two kilograms, he said.

“It was easy to catch because it was still trying to swallow a rat,” Mr Sayan said.
