The father, whose story you are about to read, not only did the unthinkable by killing the King Cobra with his bare hands, he has also earned the ire of Animal rights’ activist, who viewed his vengeance mission as an act of cruelty against a helpless animal. Huh?
In an undated video first uploaded to YouTube in August, the unidentified man, whose son was allegedly bitten by the King Cobra and later died, was seen in a fit of rage, grabbing the long snake from a tree in the bush and smashing the reptile’s head severally on the ground, killing it.
The man, who is from the southern part of India, did not seem to have any care in the world about his own safety as not only did he grab the King Cobra with bare hands, he was dressed only in shorts.
What do you think of the dad’s action – animal cruelty, foolish risk or an act of bravery?
