A team of forest department officials rescued an 18-feet-long python in northern India's Uttarakhand.
The incident took place in Doiwala town near Dehradun on August 18.
A team led by Ravi Joshi assisted in the dramatic rescue operation.
Footage shows the rescuers making desperate efforts to capture the serpent safely, while a crowd gathered to watch.
An official can be seen using a snake catcher stick to lure the python out of the thick bush cover. The python attempts to strike back, but after several attempts, officials managed to drag the snake out of the bush.
A man then holds the snake by its neck while others attempt to secure the serpent inside a sack.
According to local reports, the python will be released into Rajaji park.
