Wong:
Here's something you don't hear about every day. A python near Pune city in western India state swallowed a deer alive on Christmas day. But it wasnt the easiest of meals to keep down. Please be warned that this report may contain graphic images.

STORY:
About 30 miles outside of Pune, a farmer couple in Mulshi village were taken aback when they came across a 12-foot python lying in their field with a swollen abdomen.

The python seemed lethargic as it lay still.

Soon, frightened villagers collected at the site.

Volunteers from "Friends of Nature" then arrived . and identified the snake as a rare Indian rock python.

The python was trying to eject its victim as it was probably too large to digest.

[Naina Aabale, From "Friends of Nature"]:
"He took 10 minutes to vomit it completely. As it kept coming out, it looked like the barking deer species, and it came out. For about 2 minutes the python did not move because the head of the barking deer was stuck in its jaws and it was not moving."

It was later found that the animal was a Chinkara deer, which the python finally managed to eject.

The python was taken to a secluded place in the jungle where it's being treated for internal injuries.
