WARNING: Video contains graphic footage, viewer discretion advised.

Shocking footage has been shared online showing the moment a large python devours a pet cat in a suburban Brisbane backyard.

The confronting video was captured by snake catcher Janne Torkkola at Sunnybank Hills on Tuesday morning and uploaded to Facebook in a bid to warn others to keep a close eye on their pets.


“Interesting call! This poor cat evidently was out stalking early this morning when a carpet python made a meal out of him. Good reminder to keep your cats indoors/enclosed folks, particularly at nigh time! Condolences to the owners,” the caption of the video read.
