At 3:20pm yesterday (June 15), Kusoldharm Rescue workers were informed that a king cobra had been found on top of a car’s bonnet in the Khao Phra Theao Student Centre set within the Khao Phra Theao Non-Hunting Area (Tonsai Waterfall) in Thalang.

Chief of the Kusoldharm Rescue Foundation, Mr Wirat Rodphan, arrived at the scene and was led to a white Honda Civic parked in the car park.

The owner of the car, who declined to be named, was clearly in a state of panic.

However, by the time Mr Wirat arrived the 2-metre-long king cobra, weighing 3 kilograms, had moved itself from on top of the car bonnet to underneath it and had coiled itself in the vehicle’s engine.

After 15 minutes of trying, rescue workers successfully removed the snake using a snake-catching snare.

The owner of the car said, “I parked my car in the parking area and when I returned I found the snake on top of the bonnet. When the snake saw me it slithered under the bonnet and into the engine.”

After being caught and bagged, the snake was released into an another area within the Khao Phra Theao Non-Hunting Area.

Should you encounter a similar incident please contact the Kusoldharm Rescue Foundation on 076 211 706 or 076 355 330.

Sounds like the own of the car was "hissterical". Great to see the Kusoldharm Rescue Foundation rescue team doing a great job and public service. Well done  !
