Litter and plastic waste create problems for wildlife and pets. In a recent incident at Odisha’s Puri, a cobra got stuck in a can of beer that had been left on the side of the road.
His head was stuck in the box and could not escape. Locals intervened and called for wildlife rescuers, who were able to free the reptile and release it back into the wild.
A terrified cobra has been seen struggling in its lawn after getting its head stuck in a can of beer.
Video of the rescue operation shows a handler approaching the reptile with a bag in his left hand and a metal snake catcher on his right. He first cut a small hole in the side of the box to let the snake breathe.
As the snake’s head came out of the canister, experts used an open-ended plastic tube to cover its mouth and prevent it from biting anyone. The expert then cuts the tin and frees it.
