In a bizarre event captured on camera, a Spectacled Cobra regurgitated an entire plastic bottle in the village of Karvem-Canacona, Goa.
It is learnt that the Spectacled Cobra entered the village and while swallowing a small rodent, gulped down a plastic bottle from a garbage dump, assuming it is food.
People of the village panicked when they saw the Spectacled Cobra struggling to move. They immediately called snake catcher – Gautam Bhagat, who suggested that as the snake looked extremely uncomfortable, he helped the snake to vomit the bottle.
This previously unheard or unseen of phenomenon is a common occurrence among cattle and stray dogs. They are seen regurgitating plastic waste very often. It however, seems like the first time a snake has regurgitated plastic waste.
One of the reasons for this occurrence is the gowning amount of plastic waste that is not being appropriately disposed of.
