On Sunday morning, a gigantic Indian rock python scared Koila Alipur. The reptile was spotted near a house on an agricultural field. The animal rescuers were immediately called on their emergency helpline (+919917109666). Two members from the NGO carefully shifted the snake into a transport carrier much to everyone’s relief.

Baiju Raj MV, director of Conservation Projects at Wildlife SOS, said, “All snakes are currently under observation and will be released back in their natural habitat once deemed fit. What is most crucial here is that people in all the instances did not take matters into their own hands and alerted the experts to handle the situation. This is a result of years of rescue and awareness work done by Wildlife SOS.”
