Chikkamagaluru: A four feet long snake, with its head trapped in a beer can, was successfully freed by a snake rescuer after a two-hour ordeal.
Reportedly, the incident occurred at Udayanagar Dantaramakki of Chikkamagaluru district on Wednesday. The snake that was spotted in the compound of Rajegowda had somehow gotten its head trapped in an empty beer can and an expert, Snake Naresh Kumar had to be summoned to rescue it.
Naresh Kumar who has so far rescued nearly 20,000 snakes says that this was the first time that he saw a snake trapped in this manner.
“The biggest challenge was to rescue the cobra without hurting it. We managed to save the snake after tactfully cutting the beer can,” he said.
