King cobra rescued & released

A King Cobra measuring about 12 feet was rescued after it wandered into a residence at No. 2 Line, Jiajuri, Nagaon on Wednesday. Green Guard Nature Organization rescue specialist Dulu Bora was informed by one Deben Nayak from the village who requested him to rush to prevent frightened villagers from killing the snake. Fortunately most people in the area have been sensitized and they waited for Dulu Bora to arrive and safely remove the snake from the village. It was later released back to the wilderness at Bagheghati, close to the Swang R.F., in the presence of forest staff from the Chapanala Beat Office, Nagaon. This is the 8th King Cobra, the world's largest venomous snake, to have been rescued from these areas close to the Karbi foothills in recent years by Sanctuary Wildlife Service Award winner Dulu Bora.
