Poacher caught with three hissing cobras in scooter's boot space

This is the moment a man is caught with three hissing cobras in his scooter’s boot space.

Wildlife activists had spotted a man frequenting a forest region in Bandipur, Karnataka, India.

So, on October 17 they stopped him and searched his scooter. They were shocked to find three cobras inside the scooter's boot space.

Two adult cobras flared up their hood in anger while the third and smallest snake was looking intimidated by the larger peers.

The activists released the snakes in the forest and handed the smuggler over local officials.

Huge demand for snake venom and skin fuels an illegal trade of cobras in India.
