Well the snake was continuously showing up around and inside the Idukki District Judge's Chambers. And be warned the snake in question here is highly venomous and a bite can be real nasty.
And about the guy in the video, He is a local snake wrangler and was called up by the Forest officials. He used garlic juice to make the snake to come out of the piping where it was hiding finally after getting out of the room through the ventilators on top. The snake was put into a sack and relocated to the Forest.
great effort Jalex! Sometimes in the mad rush of things we do forget about other co-inhabitants on our planet and even hurt them while running around. Your act was a true spirit with which we should look at our neighbors. Hats off
I am also not scared of wild animals and not particularly reptiles. IMO they are very docile. But to be true, yes sometimes I have gone through such circumstances and not gotten out of my car or stopped it to help them cross. This incident will remain in my memory to make an effort now!
Someone from the crowd asked how the fangs look like and he was showing it to them by putting the stick into the snake's mouth. He did not have any special snake handling tools or tongs so he used the stick.
Note to Mods: Can we rename the thread to just 'Wild Encounters?' As I think we all can post encounters we see anywhere and not just on the roads. This last one happened in our Court Complex and not on the roads for instance and I think more members can post similar instances instead of starting new threads. And I think the thread itself needs to be moved maybe if the thread title is changed, so I leave it for you to decide.
Dont worry, Its dead! I know many of you in the city are scared of these critters, But here in the countryside we see them on a usual basis and so we are kind of used to them. Real pests they are, destroying our crop!
