There can be no pain greater than seeing your child die in front of your own eyes. In such a situation, many have been driven to take extreme steps, but what this man — from seemingly the southern part of India — does, will shock anyone.
After his son was bitten by a King Cobra, this man — reportedly in a fit of rage — took it upon himself to avenge his son’s death by hunting down the perpetrator, and venting out his anger on the creature. This shocking video that was uploaded a while back shows a father grabbing the King Cobra with his bare hands and slamming it on the ground, repeatedly, and killing it. All of this without a care about his own well-being.
First uploaded in August on Youtube, the video has garnered over 500,000 views, and a mixed response from viewers. While some have condemned the act, calling it cruelty against a helpless animal, others were awed by the fantastical nature of the video.
