(3/10/2013)

Ni Komang Ariani, a fruit seller in the Kidul Market in Bangli, northeast Bali, fainted on Monday, March 4, 2013, when she reached into her hand bag to find a snake holding onto her wallet.

The incident that occurred at the busy market put the entire market into a minor panic as traders became alarmed when a backpack owned by the woman and placed in a pushcart began to mysteriously move. Intrigued, Ariani proceeded to unzip the backpack.

Once the bag was opened, the head of a snake – estimated to be 30 centimeters long, emerged from the purse with a Rp. 100,000 bill firmly held in its mouth. Startled, the woman jumped and screamed “snake, snake” setting off a chain reaction of screams across the market, some screaming “snake” while others shouted “brerong” (troll or poltergeist).

Tens of traders began to attack the woman’s backpack, The snake continued to climb out of the purse with the Rp. 100,000 bill still held firmly in its jaws. When the snake began to travel across the grounds of the market it suddenly vanished.

The hysterical woman, now unconscious from the ordeal, was rushed to the emergency care unit at the Bangli Hospital.

Meanwhile, the snake and the money were nowhere to be found. A subsequent count of the money in the women’s purse was short the Rp. 100,00 carried away by the “brerong” in the guise of a snake.

Meanwhile, back at Kidul market, those who had seen the snake remained convinced the black snake was some sort of poltergeist or troll (bererong).

Local citizens were also busily linking he snake’s appearance with a recent massive fire at the market, now also blamed on poltergeists inhabiting the market.
