A five-foot-long Indian Cobra snake created quite the stir at the Inner Ring Road ADA Toll Plaza on the Agra- Lucknow Highway earlier in the month. The snake was safely rescued by us along with a four-foot-long Checkered Keelback snake from a country boat at Runakta Ghat, Agra.
Imagine taking a load of clothes for laundry and opening the washing machine to find a snake curled up inside it! In a rather bizzare incident, a five-foot long black-headed royal snake was found inside a washing machine in Jahangirpuri, Delhi on Friday evening. We rescued the distressed snake Wildlife SOS and later released it into the wild.
Our team in association with the GSPCA team & the Vadodara Wildlife Division seized over fifty illegal ‘house pets’ including Indian Star Tortoises, Rose-Ringed Parakeets & Alexandrine Parakeets in Vadodara, Gujarat, a raid that caused quite the flutter in three areas of Vadodara – Ajwa, Gorwa and Chhani.
We also rushed to the rescue of a nearly 4-foot long mugger crocodile in association with the Forest Department after it was sighted in a pond in Farenda village located in Jasrana, Firozabad district.
