Cobra rescued from rooftop by forest official in Goa

A cobra was rescued by forest officials in the Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary in Goa on Thursday. Shailendra Singh of the Indian Forest Service tweeted the 2.12 second video in which a forest official climbed on top of a roof and removed the snake.

The cobra was caught up on the roof of a structure as the forest official removed the bricks to let the snake out. Thereafter, he used a stick to lead the cobra carefully into a bag. With utmost patience, the official conducted the rescue operation and managed to save the cobra.

"A clinical and fuss-free cobra rescue operation by forest officials in Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary, Goa. It's not always a tiger, leopard or an elephant that foresters have to deal with," Shailendra Singh said in the caption of the post.
