A python was recovered in Section 12 of Mechpara Tea Garden in Kalchini block of Alipurduar district on Friday. The people working in the garden noticed a python and informed the Forest Department. The forest officials of the Mailbox dam project arrived at the scene and recovered the python.
One of the forest officials, Tony Shah, who also happens to be a snake-lover, told that the reptile was somewhere around 7-8feet in length and was probably in the garden looking for a rabbit or a chicken to hunt. The python was released to safety.
