King cobra is the one of most venomous snakes that is mainly found in forests across Southeast Asia, particularly in India. Though the very sighting of a king cobra can instill fear of death in the minds of people, some people are brave enough to show compassion to the deadly reptile. One such incident came to light in Goa, India, where people came to the rescue of a thirty cobra. As the temperate soars in the region and watering holes dry up in the forest, the wildlife is subjected to an unending hardship. The snake had been lurking around a water pond when it was first spotted. Amrut Singh, president of Animal Rescue Squad, said: “We got a call around 10 am from a farm at Thane in Sattari that a large black snake was spotted on the caller’s property. ARS members Sachin Gawas and Pradeep Gaundalkar who went to the spot and came back as they needed more helping hands. That they were finding it difficult to capture the cobra that was sitting on a tree. My colleague Ishwar Parwar and I reached the spot around 11:30a.m. I climbed on the tree and slowly pushed the cobra down. After an hour at 12:30p.m. a 12.3ft-long King Cobra successfully rescued by our ARS team.” After the rescues managed to pluck the reptile from the tree, they placed a bowl of water in front of the snake. When the Cobradidn’t warm up to the bowl, the rescuers ventured closer and offered it a drink from a glass. “We kept water bowl in front of the thirsty snake, but it just stood with its hood open. So I decided to try and offer the cobrawater from a steel glass and much to my surprise the reptile started drinking from it,” said Singh. As seen in the video footage, the rescuers tried different ways to offer water to the snake — from trickling water into a leaf to offering water though a glass. The video shows one of the rescuers restraining the snake, while the other tries to offer water to the snake. The footage shows the snake quietly lapping the liquid.
