VIDEO: Dangerous thirsty cobra given water from bottle by villagers
A video of the rare kindness surfaced online on Wednesday. It was a show of rare and dangerous kindness when villagers in an Indian community decided to give water to a 12ft king cobra who was hard hit by drought.
The video shows a man pouring a bottle of water over the snake’s head as it greedily laps the liquid. The man, knowing that the situation could turn nasty at any second, holds a snake catcher so he can block any deadly move by the cobra which are known to avoid humans as much as possible.
The 12ft cobra was rescued from a village in Kaiga township. Some parts of southern India have been hit by drought, making water scarce, Daily Mail reported. When wildlife officials came the first thing they did was to offer the thirsty serpent some water before proceeding to capture and evacuate it from the village.
