You must’ve saved a lot of lives, along with the occasional non-threatening cat rescue, I’m sure. *grins slightly…* Fact is, over here in Malaysia, our firefighters do a bit more than just put out fires. Some of the most bizarre things they’ve had to deal with involve the presence of snakes, usually pythons, hiding in….well, a lot of places, according to the videos I’ve seen. There was one case of a python hiding inside of a wall, and another one that was found inside of a car’s engine. And although our local Wildlife Service (PERHILITAN, as we call them) does help in those cases, sometimes, our firefighters (BOMBA, as we call them) tend to go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to those cases.
