  • Description

    A GIANT SEA SNAKE ATTACKED A SKIN DIVER OFF CORAL REEFS NEAR TROU-AUX-BICHES, MAURITIUS, LAST WEEKEND, BUT THE CREATURE WAS HARPOONED AND LATER KILLED ABOUT A FISHING BOAT.

    THE SKIN DIVER, MR ALLY GOOLAM HOSSEN FROM PORT LOUIS, WAS SURFACING WHEN HE WAS ATTACKED BY THE SNAKE WHICH WAS SIX FEET (1.8 METRES) LONG AND WEIGHED ABOUT 72 LBS (32.6 KILOGRAMS).

    IT APPEARED THAT THE SNAKE WAS CHASING THE FISH WHICH MR HOSSEN HAD ALREADY CAUGHT SINCE THREE WERE LATER RECOVERED FROM THE INSIDE OF THE CREATURE.
