Missing Man Found Inside 23-Foot Python

, ,

National Geographic:

At first the video is blurry and difficult to make out. A bunch of men standing around a python begin slicing its belly down the middle. It soon becomes apparent that something of note is inside the giant snake, but it’s not immediately clear what has drawn so much attention.

Then you see it: An entire grown man, swallowed whole, lies dead inside the python.

According to local news reports, the body found inside the 23-foot-long snake turned out to be 25-year-old Akbar Salubiro, a harvester who worked on a palm oil plantation on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. He was reported missing on March 26.

Local media also report that the snake involved is a reticulated python. These snakes are among some of the largest in the world, growing over 20 feet long and weighing more than a hundred pounds.

Full story.

A few years ago while watching a TV show about a hunter who killed predators for ranchers I got an idea. The predator was a mountain lion/panther and the hunter devised a wooded rack to wear on his back with sharpened points to prevent a Mountain lion from achieving their preferred attack, i.e. a sneak attack from behind where the lion bite through the spinal cord at the neck. Why not a not so different device that could be carried in a backpack that would eject knife like projections perhaps 6″-8″ long with a control button that was attached to your wrist and available to your hand. It would work against muggers, other animals, almost anny type of attack from behind. Might even be a suitable device for military sentrys.


When you find something you’ve lost it’s always in the last place you look.
