A young man from Karnataka who was trying some careless stunt with three cobras learnt his lesson the hard way after he got attacked by one.
This man is named Maaz Sayed, a snake enthusiast from Sirsi who uploads videos doing various stunts with snakes on his Youtube channel which has over 800 subscribers. However, the last stunt he performed was handled in a horrific manner
Unfortunately, this time his stunt didn’t end up well for him when one of the snakes suddenly struck him. Footage of the same has gone viral where a snake can be seen jumping at the stuntman and biting his knee. The reptile refused to let go even as the shocked man tried to pull it away.
Sharing the video on Twitter, Indian Forest Service officer Susanta Nanda criticised the snake handler. “This is just a horrific way of handling cobras…The snake considers the movements as threats and follow the movement. At times, the response can be fatal,” he wrote.
After this, a Facebook was shared by Priyanka Kadam, President and Founder of Snakebite Healing and Education Society which revealed that Sayed was hospitalised after the cobra bit him. The post contained pictures of the boy in the hospital and also showcased the snake bite on his knee.
