The authorities of the Girnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Junagadh, were informed about the incident through a telephonic message by a farmer, who first noticed it.
"Python roams around the wildlife sanctuary and they could rarely be seen. We got a telephonic message of a farmer that a python has swallowed a big animal. We sent a rescue team immediately and found that a python has swallowed a blue bull," said Assistant Conservator of Forest S.D. Tilala.
Tilala said they would release the python soon after it digests the blue bull.
"It was 18-20 feet long. We have transported the animal to some other place so that it does not injure other people. We will keep it under observation. When it will digest the blue bill, we will release the python in the forest," he added.
