The snake was turned over to authorities by SK Kagawad Kennedy Dinoy of Brgy. Bagong Sikat, Puerto Princesa City.

According to reports, Kagawad Dinoy found the reticulated python in his backyard. Concerned for the snake’s safety and recognizing the importance of proper wildlife management, Kagawad Dinoy reached out to the PCSDS to surrender the snake.

The rescue highlights the significance of community involvement in wildlife conservation efforts. The PCSD commends Kagawad Dinoy for his responsible actions and encourages others to follow suit by reporting wildlife encounters to appropriate authorities. The reticulated python will undergo assessment and, if deemed fit, will be released back into its natural habitat, contributing to the preservation of Palawan’s diverse ecosystem.

It is noteworthy that the Reticulated Python is classified as an โ€œEndangered Speciesโ€ under PCSD Resolution 23-967, highlighting the importance of wildlife preservation.
