While speaking to MS News, Mr. Kalai said that the ACRES Wildlife rescue team received a call claiming the incident from some individuals in the public. However, the python did not pose a major threat to anyone, but it had attracted a huge crowd. In such a situation there was a chance of it falling to the ground, probably on the people who were standing there. He also explained that the reptile may have gotten into that position by slithering up a nearby pole, and it only happens when these reptiles feel threatened or vulnerable.
