New Delhi: Two cobras were rescued from the city from different locations. The first, a five-foot-long cobra was found at Delhi Race Course premises and the second from the basement of a factory in DSIIDC, Bawana.

Occupants residing at the BR Camp, adjoining Race Course, found the large snake outside a house, nestled inside a hole in the wall. Fearing for their safety, the occupants called NGO Wildl-ife SOS for help, following which the snake was rescued.

Soon after, the NGO received a call about the presence of a snake inside a garment factory located in the Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIIDC) area, Bawana. A staff member stumbled upon something rather unusual on the basement floor and it wasn’t long before he realised it was, in fact, a freshly moulted snakeskin.

The team scoured the room and eventually found a cobra amidst a pile of storage boxes.

Kartick Satyanarayan, Co-founder and CEO of Wildlife SOS said, “Cobras seldom bite, but will give out a warning sign by displaying their hood. They use their venom primarily to hunt prey like rats, mice and frogs. People get accidentally bitten only when they step on the snake or an untrained person attempts to catch or handle these snakes.”
