This is the moment a snake catcher freed a deadly viper which was caught in a fishing net.
Expert snake handler Mr Mohan was called to a property in Bangalore in India's Karnataka state on Saturday (December 21st).
He found a highly venomous Russell's viper caught in a blue fishing net.
Using a pair of scissors, Mohan carefully cut away the net and removed the reptile in a special bag.
The snake was released shortly afterwards in a forest reserve.
Russell's vipers often live in farmland where they come into contact with humans and so are a major cause of snakebite deaths.
