connectVideoIndonesia police used live snake to torture Papuan man suspected of theft phone

A man suspected of stealing mobile phones was tortured and threatened with a live snake stuffed in his mouth and on his pants during a police interrogation in Indonesia.

Talk about a slithery surprise.

A black rat snake — estimated at 7 metres in length, was spotted twisting and contorting his long body from the side of Linda Bertolette home in Farmington, Connecticut, on Monday.

“We had an unexpected visitor, an unwanted visitor: A huge black rat snake,” she told NBC Connecticut, adding her teenage daughter was quick to capture images of the event.

“I was shocked by the size of it and how aggressive it was,” she added. “It seemed to be on a video that was recorded in the Amazon jungle, not in Connecticut.”

After the snake and eventually to the roof, (in the video seems to find its way to the house of the gutter), Bertolette said they called an exterminator, because she was afraid of the snake found a way to her home. The thought alone led Bertolette to tell the news station “is she ready to rescue.”

“I was pretty much ready to put the house on the market,” she added.

Fortunately, an exterminator, in particular, the rat snake is not in its home — news that relieved Bertolette.

“I feel much better about the whole thing,” she told NBC Connecticut.

Rat snakes are non-venomous and mostly are found in the fields and forests of the many locations across the country, including Connecticut, South Carolina, Kansas and Oklahoma, according to the National Wildlife Federation.

“Black rat snakes are excellent swimmers and climbers. They will use these skills to catch a variety of food, from bird eggs to frogs,” the federal agency says online. “They are the snake most likely to be seen around the buildings of the hunting for rodents, amphibians and young birds. Black rat snakes are constrictor snakes and use their bodies to suffocate their prey.”
