Rajouri: Wildlife Protection Department in Rajouri has rescued a ‘cobra’ from a house in Nowshera town.

This was the second (Cobra) snake rescued in the district in the last six days. Locals said that these were two incidents wherein these poisonous snakes (cobras) were captured alive.

“Late Friday evening, the members of a family in Nowshera saw a snake in their washroom. They then raised an alarm and the people from the locality assembled and later called officials of Wildlife Protection at the spot,” locals informed.

The wildlife officials later captured the snake, who was found to be a Cobra. Warden of Wildlife Protection Department, Mushtaq Chowdhary said, “Cobra snakes are believed to be present in some parts of the district like Nowshera and Sunderbani, which generally witness hotter days.”

He said, “For the first time, two Cobra snakes have been captured alive in the district.”

“Our staff received a call last week and rescued a Cobra from a house in Dhangri village,” said the officer, who added that last night another snake of this poisonous species was found and rescued in Nowshera. “Both the snakes have been released in their natural habitat,” he said.
