ACRES Removes Python That Was Lounging On Footpath At Ulu Pandan
Singapore may be a highly developed and modern city, but wildlife sightings are still relatively common here.
Just a few months ago, officers from the Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (ACRES) had to remove a massive python from the window of a Bedok Reservoir HDB flat.
Recently, another snake rescue operation took place on the other side of the island.
After a python was seen chilling along a footpath at Ulu Pandan, ACRES went down to move the reptile to a safer location.

On Thursday (22 Sep), a Facebook user shared a video of ACRES officers conducting an operation in Ulu Pandan.
They were getting ready to catch a massive-looking python, which was just lying there by the side of the footpath.
According to the OP, the snake was “huge” — a fact that viewers can clearly see from the clip.
At the beginning of the video, one of the ACRES officers places a large cage near the python.
He then gloves up as he and his partner discuss how to get the job done.
Several curious cyclists and joggers also stopped and got ready to observe the action.
