A video from Australia showing a python catching and eating a large bird while hanging from a television antenna went viral on the internet last week.
Cathy Gall, from Kingscliff, Australia, captured the video of the snake eating the bird and uploaded it to the Kingscliff Happenings page on Facebook, the Independent reported. The snake is seen wrapped around the antenna and trying to devour the Currawong, a common bird in eastern Australia. Gall shot the video from the roof of her house.
She said it took the snake more than one hour to completely consume the Currawong. The video was shared more than 1,000 times on Facebook and generated a lot of comment. Some were sympathetic about the bird’s fate, others were glad to see this part of nature. Many said they found the noisy Currawong birds more annoying than snakes.
Currawongs are common in Australia and are well-known for their calls and being noisy.
