Rescuer has to unwrap cobra trapped under motorcycle seat in India

A snake entered a mechanic shop in east India and managed to get trapped inside a motorcycle, prompting a snake rescuer to save it.

Bipra Charan Nayak, a mechanic at Sunabeda, Odisha, saw a cobra entering his garage on March 16.

It slithered up a bike and vanished under the seat. Bipra called Snake Helpline, which sent a volunteer, Sujit Kumar Mohanty, to the spot.

It was not easy to spot the snake inside the bike. Sujit cautiously removed the seat and the side panels and managed to locate the snake.

Then with the help of a snake hook, he pulled out the cobra and released it away from inhabited areas.
