Cobra and Russell Viper coming out from the burrows, rescued eight hundred snakes here in 90 days

In the rainy season, poisonous snakes like King Cobra and Russell Viper have started coming out of the burrows. In the last three months so far 800 snakes have been rescued from the population area. Venomous snakes have targeted three people. One of the children has also lost his life.

In Haridwar, adjacent to the forest of Rajaji Tiger Reserve, poisonous snakes come out in summer and rain. Snakes come out of the burrows as their home is filled with water and sunlight. They hide not only inside people's homes, roofs, shops and offices but also inside vehicles. 800 snakes have been rescued in three months.

In the first week of July, a boy was bitten by a black cobra while looking for a five rupee coin that had fallen in the garbage. He had died on the spot. In June, a woman was also bitten by a black cobra in during the night.

One woman was saved after treatment. Two months ago in Brahmapuri, a woman was bitten by a poisonous snake. She too was saved from treatment. Due to this, there is an atmosphere of panic among the people of the colonies built around the forest about the entry of snakes.

10 to 15 snakes being caught every day

Snakes start coming out from the scorching heat and the process continues during the rainy season. According to the Forest Department, on average 10 to 15 snake rescues are being done from the populated area every day. However, most snakes are not poisonous. Still, seeing snakes, fear strikes in the hearts of people.

These dangerous poisonous snakes are being caught

So far four species of poisonous snakes have been found in Dharmanagari. Among these, King Cobra, Black Cobra, Russell Viper and Common Krait have been found in people's houses and shops etc. These snakes are so poisonous that people die due to their bites.

 The rescue team is equipped with medical kit

The members of the rescue team that rescued the poisonous snakes are Santan Singh Negi, Talib and Bhola Singh. They have a complete medical kit ranging from snake anti-beam injections. They are given masks, gloves, helmets and shoes etc.

Adequate injection in hospital

District Hospital's Acting Medical Superintendent Dr. Chandan Mishra said that snake anti-venom medicine is available in sufficient quantity in the hospital. Due to very few cases of snake bites, people come in very small numbers to get injections.
