This is the moment a 2.5ft long cobra is rescued after it got trapped in a steel mesh escaping through a drainage outlet by a temple in India.

The snake had swallowed a toad and got stuck in the mesh due to its bloated abdomen.

Volunteer Mr Atul Baral rushed to the spot and rescued the snake by digging the drainage outlet with the help of bystanders.

The snake was later taken to the College of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry (OUAT) in Bhubaneswar, where Dr Biswadip Jena freed the snake by cutting the mesh with a metal cutter.

The snake then regained its mobility and regurgitated the toad.
