Woah! Huge python devours bird while dangling from clothesline

Now this is definitely not what you want when going to hang your freshly washed laundry out on the line…

Disturbing footage has been shared online, showing the moment a massive python devours an innocent bird while dangling from a clothes line in the backyard of a Qld family’s home.

The confronting video was captured by snake catcher Stuart McKenzie and shared to the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 Facebook page in a bid to warn people about the potential dangers of feeding birds.


“This is definitely a warning to anyone who feeds wild birds in their yard,” Mr McKenzie wrote.

“Please be aware that you may also cause snakes to come in after the birds and also encourage rats because of all the left over seed.

“This Carpet Python was hanging out on the family’s clothes line which acted as a bird feeder.

“It was only a matter of time until it got himself a nice feed of bird!”

The frightening encounter took place at a home in Buderim on the Sunshine Coast this week.
