Wildlife rescuer Goutham Bhagat, who was there in the spot said 'When I saw the snake with a bulge in its stomach. I thought the cobra must have swallowed something big that it was not able to digest.  But I didn't have an idea that it would spit out an empty soft drinks bottle.'

Watch the shocking video below:

The incident took place at Cauvrem village in Goa's Canacona taluka where Bhagat is working as a wildlife rescuer. Gautam had come to the rescue of the snake when it had entered a localite's house and appeared to have a bulged stomach before throwing out what turned out to be plastic bottle.

The video makes us rethink about the usage of plastic products and the environment damage it leads to. Countless animals in the wildlife die every year because of consuming the plastic materials disposed or thrown away by us
