This is the moment four brave felines square up to a huge snake – reportedly a venomous cobra – with one feisty moggie even taking a swipe at the hissing creature.
The scene was recorded by Indian movie star Neil Nitin Mukesh as he turned up at an unspecified location in India to film for his upcoming movie ‘Bypass Road’.
In the clip, the felines can be seen curiously eyeing the snake with one even taking a swipe at it. Later, the snake can be seen apparently preparing to strike the hapless moggies before apparently deciding the back down and slithering away into nearby greenery.
Alongside the clip, the actor wrote: “Earlier in the day. Went for the BGM with @naman.n.mukesh for #BypassRoad , got down of the car and saw this.”
He later claimed wildlife officials were then called to capture the snake in response to concerns from netizens.
Netizen bharatmilaap said: “Someone should have informed the snake catchers to get that young cobra out of there and release it in forest area around.”
