A black cobra was rescued from a government office building in central India's Madhya Pradesh on March 20 by a snake catcher. The incident took place in the Finance Department of the Ministry of Defence building in Sagar. A video shows the snake expert Akeel Baba arriving to conduct his rescue operation during the daytime. Baba can be seen entering the office, where a person tells him the location of the reptile hiding underneath a shelf. The 5-foot-long black cobra took two hours to rescue. The cobra was caught using a snake stick and taken outside before being put into a container for transport.
