We were contacted by Mr. Kasozi a resident of one of the villages near Bujuko town along Mityana road on Tel No.0790852593 and his communication asserted that they had captured a big snake and they wanted UWEC to respond by going to collect it from their farm.
Dr. Kyaligonza instructed our team to go for this rescue mission and we set off from the centre at around 11:00 am and we reached the scene at around 2 O’clock.
The snake was found tied by a plastic rope on two opposite trees. The residents had captured the reptile in the morning. She weighed kilograms, twice the weight of our current individuals.
The African rock python was tied in the middle part of its body leaving the head alert and ready to strike at anyone who tried attack or come close to her.
The residents were sensitized on the need to coexist with other creatures.
