King cobra spotted at courtyard creates panic among people
Erumeli: A king cobra spotted at a residential area created panic among the people here the other day. When two boys were coming home after SSLC exam on Wednesday, they saw a giant snake on their courtyard. As the children raised an alarm, the snake crawled away to a nearby compound.
Kallamakkil Shaji, who supplies drinking water in a vehicle to the area, happened to see the snake moving fast across the path and entering over a stone wall. On watching this, he called snake catcher Vava Suresh. The king cobra crawled inside a stone wall on Kochezhuthil Madhu's compound and was hiding inside.
Forest guards also arrived at the place knowing about the incident. Finally, Vava Suresh broke the wall partially and caught the snake after 30 minutes of long effort. Another king cobra was caught from Ezhukumannu which is only 2 kilometre away from here a few days ago.
