A sneaky reptile found its way onto the rooftop of a house in Goa and camouflaged itself under the tiles of the roof. Soon after the appearance of the venomous cobra, an alarm was raised to the forest department and a forest official from Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary rescued the snake single-handedly and with his bare hands.
The viral video first shows the forest official struggling to find the cobra from under the tiles and lifting it with the help of a wooden stick. The rescuer then grabs the snake by its tail and gently directs it into a cloth bag.
