Security video from Thailand shows the chilling moment a snake entered a garden and tried to hunt down a pet cat.
Fortunately for the cat it was alert to the menace posed by the 10ft snake slithering towards it.
The filmer said: ‘My father was watering his plants. Suddenly he found a big snake on his right-hand side was slithering inside trying to eat my cat.
‘He didn’t even hesitate, he jumped across the bench and grabbed the cat, and tried to call the security guard around there.
‘At that minute he saw the snake coming closer and closer so he ran into the house, but the snake was still chasing hungrily.
They said the snake eventually retreated.
