Brave rescuer lowered into 100-feet-deep well to retrieve deadly cobra
A brave rescuer was lowered down into a 100-feet-deep well in Maharashtra, western India, to retrieve a deadly cobra.
A farmer alerted the Wildlife Rescue Society (WRS) after finding a cobra stranded at the bottom of the deep pit.
Hrishikesh Jadhav was lowered down into the well where he attempted to lure the venomous snake into a bag.
After an hour Jadhav managed to secure the serpent and he was hauled to the surface by locals.
Akash Jadhav of the WRS, said: "The well was dangerous as it was not walled properly. I am relieved that we could complete the rescue work without any incidents.”
The cobra was later released in a safe place.
