Agra: 

A truck driver in Agra saw a seven-foot long python crawling up the front wheel of his vehicle, and screamed for help, the police said.

He then immediately informed the police who got in touch with the specialists at an animal rescue centre run by an NGO.

The reptile was later rescued by a team of local NGO Wildlife SOS in the Jeoni Mandi area along the Yamuna river. It was later released into its natural habitat.

In a bid to climb up the vehicle, the python got intricately trapped in the chassis panel frames of the truck.

Baiju Raj MV, Director, conservation projects, Wildlife SOS, said, "The sheer size of the python made the rescue operation more challenging. Our team had to be very careful while removing the chassis as we wanted to avoid hurting the python during the extraction."
