To take a selfie with a python, a forest ranger narrowly escaped death: See Video

A West Bengal officer narrowly escaped the death after he attempts to take a selfie with a 30-foot-long snake tightened its grip around the neck of the ranger. The locals had hired the forest ranger to capture the deadly and venomous python which had earlier killed a goat. After the Python caught in the trap, the Range officer rolled the python around his neck as a sign of victory and also took selfies at the moment.

But things not gone according to the plan, python tightens the knot around his neck and started to strangle but escaped by chance. Due to his defiance of the procedure, which involves the forest officials collaring the snake to capture him, transferring him in a sack and carrying it away in order to release it into the forest later, the incident could have proven deadly for him as the snake slipped out of the hands of another assistant who was holding it.

Coming out of its initial daze, the python began to wriggle, twist and turn while he was still rested on the officer’s neck. As the ranger sensed trouble, he started walking away from the crowds. Much to the absolute horror of the onlookers, the snake went out of control before the officer ordered his assistant to hold the tail in a panicky voice.
