Animal rescuer frees snake caught in fence in southern India

An animal rescuer saved the life of a rat snake recently that was caught in a fence in southern India. A resident of Cuddalore City in Tamil Nadu spotted the stricken reptile tangled in netting surrounding his home on April 16 and called in the expert named Chella. The animal rescuer quickly realised the three-foot rat snake was close to dying and carefully cut the reptile free with a pair of scissors. The snake was released in a nearby forest.
