Colombian Villagers Save Injured 16 Foot Anaconda

A giant anaconda was rescued after being spotted injured and tangled in bushes behind a tourist resort.

French tourists Denis and Marie-France Grenouillet filmed the rescue while visiting Los Llanos, Colombia. The snake, estimated to be around 16ft, had been injured by the fishermen who use the river to make a living.

To save the animal’s life ten brave rescuers carefully carried it in a sack across the river where it was loaded onto a jeep and driven to a lagoon four miles away from the reserve. The footage, shot in 2013, has only recently been released.
