This huge 16-foot anaconda got the rescue treatment from some mindful Columbians.
Watch the dicey circumstances as a 16-foot python is discovered tangled in bushes, with a particularly interesting wound.
The locals speculated that the bullet wound came from a fisherman, who likely didn't want to competition for game fish. Large snakes are not unlike other predators; there's often a delicate relationship between them an the humans who also hunt or fish for their prey. Coexistence is key, something these Columbians seem to have down pretty well.
That being said, I'm not sure I'd ever get that close to that large of an anaconda, good deed or not.
