Firefighters removed a 3-metre-long cobra from a toilet at a hydropower station in southern China. The video, shot in Zhenfeng County in Guizhou Province on March 18, shows a group of firemen using a snake catcher to clamp the cobra's head. Another group of firemen opened the pipe from the bottom of the toilet's drainage and put a woven bag over it to force the snake to move upwards. Since the cobra was big and poisonous, firefighters contacted the local forest police to help release the snake after they caught it. The video was provided by local media with permission.
