The clip shows the predator tightly wrapped around the helpless goat while villagers surrounding them shout in despair. The goat puts on a brave fight for an astonishing 40 minutes as it tries to avoid being swallowed whole by the python.

Fortunately, a local passer-by saves the goat’s life by repeatedly striking the serpent’s head with a tree branch. Finally, the snake is seen slithering away into the wilderness, leaving the goat alive.
