Indian Man dies after kissing a cobra

Mumbai, India: In a shocking incident, a snake lover in Navi Mumbai paid with his life for attempting to kiss a rescued cobra and click a selfie here last week, an activist said on Monday.

Volunteer snake rescuer Somnath Mhatre, 18, plucked the cobra from a car in a bid to take it to a safe place. But when he posed for a photo attempting to peck the snake on the head, the hooded animal turned on him, sinking its fangs into his chest.

His shocked family members and other animal lovers said he was an expert who had rescued over 100 snakes and released them back in the wild safely in the past few years. Activists are now calling on the Forest Department to issue guidelines to take action against those involved in performing and posting pictures of stunts involving snakes.
