Random thoughts on life in Liuzhou, Guangxi, China

Finding the football exciting enough?

One lucky Liuzhou chap, a Mr Wei, found the television a little too exciting the other day!

A large cobra was caught after it slithered into a home in Liuzhou, the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, on Monday night.

Wei, who found the snake lying under his television, immediately called for help.

Two fire fighters wearing protective clothing took more than two hours to catch the 2-metre-long cobra.

The giant snake is believed to have escaped from a local restaurant.

Only last May, a man died in Liuzhou after being bitten by a cobra which had escaped from wildlife poachers.
