Animal rescuers were forced to tackle a very large python in Thailand province Chachoengsao Thursday in newly emerged video footage. A woman discovered the long snake hiding in her bedroom as it attempted to attack her kitten, according to reports. The python was 10 feet long.

Kesinee Jittakit, 53, first heard the snake's hissing as she was preparing to head to bed. Jittakit, who is a mother to two children, spotted the large serpent underneath a table. She promptly left her home and alerted local law enforcement.

Animal rescuers arrived at the scene to handle the situation. Rescuers claimed the python likely turned up by way of monsoon rains, the Daily Mail reported Friday. Monsoons have been known to bring about snakes.

"It scared me more than [any thing] I've ever been before," Jittakit told the Daily Mail Friday. "I'm scared of sleeping in the bedroom now. I'll just stay on the sofa for a little while. 'I'm happy it's gone now and that my pet cat Mandalay is safe."

The python didn't do down without a fight. Video footage showed animal rescuers quickly grabbing the serpent after finding it hiding behind shoe boxes, but the python continued to resist the rescue team. The massive snake repeatedly unraveled itself and escaped from the rescuers' pole. The men attempted to grab the snake again, but it managed to dodge rescuers' efforts. 

The men eventually reeled in the python using a pole and noose. The snake was then placed into a large sack before it was carried away. 

Monsoon rains flood large sections of Thailand annually. Monsoon storm season, however, also means it's snake season. These storms cause burrowing creatures of many varieties, including large snakes, to seek shelter on dry land after their homes are flooded by the storm. 

"Everything, everyone, is restricted to tiny, tiny islands with very little space," Romulus Whitaker, a snake expert, told the Seattle Times in 2007. "Everyone is crammed in together and the chances of running into snakes, stepping on them, grabbing them and sleeping on them is much, much more."

The sight of snakes is said to be an early signal of an oncoming flood. Snakes, therefore, will take shelter wherever they can find it on dry land. Sources for shelter could be someone's home, among other spots.

"These serpents even climb up the trees," Vinod Chaudhry, a government wildlife expert, told Associated Press in 2007. "They are as nervous and scared as human beings and they bite only if they are disturbed."

There are ways to decrease the chances of a snake encounter following a monsoon. Garbage and debris can attract snakes. Keeping a home free of these things can reduce the possibility of a snake sighting.
