Bhadrak: When a cobra couple was enjoying each other’s company in the nature’s lap, slithering away into the sunset with love in their eyes, they were unfortunately caught by Snake Helpline officials. But, what happened after that will blow your minds!
The incident took place in Bhattasahi village under Dhusuri area. Locals spotted the two cobras behind the village temple and panic spread in the area. They immediately informed forest officials and Snake Helpline to catch hold of the poisonous reptiles. On intimation, officials reached the spot and began the operation. As soon as they were captured, locals expected that the cobras would try to escape.
However to their surprise, the cobra couple stayed intact and the both were lost in each other’s eyes. The atmosphere suddenly turned romantic as if the snakes were saying to each other, “I have no care in the world if I am with you.” For over 10 minutes, the snakes continued to look into each other’s eyes expressing their love and feelings.
While everyone stood their awed and surprised at the scene, the snakes were later left inside deep forest to spend the Valentine’s week peacefully.
