Mukdahan Cop Turns Alien Hunter Into Hunted

When an intergalactic trophy-hunter went gallivanting through rural Isaan on a hog decorated with the bones of his prey, it took one gutsy cop to pull him over.

Senior Sgt. Maj. Somphong Kumbuala of the easternmost reaches of Mukdahan province recounted Monday his harrowing encounter after photos of him apprehending a man dressed head-to-toe as a Predator from the sci-fi film series of the same name went viral over the weekend.

“I was manning a checkpoint on Friday when he drove past, so I stopped him,” said the cool-as-ice maverick cop. “He said got dressed up and decorated his bike all by himself for a talk at a local school.”

Somphong said it was the first time he had seen either a Predator or Alien in Mukdahan.

The photos posted by Issara Phaksanam were liked more than 10,000 times and shared more than 11,000 times as of Monday.

“Police: P’Pre, did you bring your alien immigrant card? Pre: I went clubbing last night, I can’t find it yet,” wrote commentor Mljuko Dys among a series of user-generated captions to the photos.

pythons eat humans

23-foot python swallows woman whole in Indonesia

A massive python killed a woman in Indonesia, the second time in just over a year one of the giant constrictors swallowed a human in adjacent provinces in that country.

The woman, 54-year-old Wa Tiba, went missing while checking her vegetable garden near her village on Muna island in Southeast Sulawesi province on Thursday evening, said the chief of the village of Persiapan Lawela, Faris, who uses a single name.

Wa Tiba was concerned about wild boars getting into her corn, planted about a half-mile from her house.

When she hadn’t returned by sunrise Friday, her sister went to look for her. She found only Tiba’s footprints, her flashlight, her machete and slippers.

Her family and nearly 100 other villagers mounted a search, and discovered a 23-foot-long reticulated python about 150 feet away from her belongings. The snake was so bloated it could barely move.

The villagers killed it.

“When they cut open the snake’s belly they found Tiba’s body still intact with all her clothes,” Faris said. “She was swallowed first from her head.”

Videos posted on some websites showed villagers slicing open the python’s carcass with a machete to reveal the woman’s lifeless corpse.

Faris said the woman’s garden, about half a mile from her house, is located in a rocky area with caves and cliffs believed to contain many snakes.

Wa Tiba was probably killed before she was swallowed. Pythons typically grab onto their prey with dozens of sharp curved teeth and then squeeze it to death before swallowing it whole.

Reports of humans being killed by pythons are extremely rare. The snakes generally eat monkeys, pigs and other mammals. Attacks on humans are supposed to be as rare as winning the lottery and being struck by lightning at the same time, according to the Washington Post report.

But a similar attack on a human took place on another Indonesian island in March 2017, when a 25-year-old man was swallowed whole by a python in West Sulawesi province.

Reticulated pythons, the longest snakes in the world, are common in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia.

Thousands of Foreigners Turned Away at Thai Airports

More than 3,600 foreigners with criminal records have been arrested at or turned away from five major airports in the first six months of the year, immigration police said Sunday.

In what was described as a national security effort, immigration officers at Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang, Phuket, Chiang Mai and Hat Yai international airports arrested 156 foreigners wanted for criminal offenses including those suspected of transnational crimes between January and June, according to police spokesman Col. Choengron Rimpadee.

More than 3,400 foreigners deemed to “pose a risk to public order” were also turned away. Most were from South Asian countries and suspected of trying to enter the country to work illegally, Choengron said.

He also said 30 of them had sexual assault-related records, and refusing entry would “protect the nation’s image regarding human rights violations” and counter the reputation that Thailand, a popular destination for commercial sex services, is a “sex country.”

He added that the number of passengers arriving at the five airports during the first half of this year reached nearly 18 million, a 31 percent increase compared to the same period last year. 14 million of the total were foreigners, and Suvarnabhumi airport welcomed the most visitors – 10 million arrivals.

The bureau expects visits in the second half of the year to continue expand by another 5 percent.

Man dies of rabies in Kalasin, province's first case in 20 years

An electrician died of rabies at Kalasin Hospital on Sunday morning, about eight months after being bitten by a dog in October last year.

The doctors said this was the first case of death from rabies in this northeastern province in 20 years.

According to information from his relatives, in October last year Anon Phuchanam, 42, went to a grocery shop at Hua Ngua village in Yang Talat district for some liquor after fixing electrical lines in a house nearby. While walking to his motorcycle to return home, he accidentally stepped on the tail of a dog which belonged to the grocery shop. The dog bit him in the calf of the right leg, leaving a scratch on it.

Anon cleaned the scratch by pouring liquor on it, and did not seek medical attention.

Following the incident, the grocery shop owner killed the dog in a fit of rage.

In May, Anon developed a chronic fever. He went to Yang Talat Hospital on June 12 for treatment and was transferred to Kalasin Hospital on Thursday. The doctors sent samples of his blood, urine and spinal cord to the Medical Science Department for examination. The department confirmed the man had contracted rabies.

Anon died at Kalasin Hospital at 6am on Sunday.

The case prompted Kalasin governor Kraisorn Kongchalad to call a meeting of health officials to launch a campaign to prevent a possible outbreak of the deadly disease in the province.

First class moaNAN, a lot of things have to be taken into consideration about your speech, one is with some, not all, elderly folk/retirees they tend to moan about things more than say younger people, not just in Thailand but all over the world. add to that, like myself when i came here the exchange rate was 70+ bht to the pound. hmm! thats a sickener on its own.

I know for a fact with the expats i know, some are left to their own devices as their wife/partner are out making merit, yeah rite, or off out with the family shopping, spending your dough. not a nice thought, but it happens, some let it go on and then moan about it. but not to the wife.

Ha! Ha!. thats what t/v is for.
