Snakes and Crocodile take over flooded homes in Kerala
After battling hard with uncontrollable floods, people from relief camps returns homes and discovered it being invaded by snakes, insects and other dangerous reptiles.
In Kerala’s Thrissur District, a man after returning home on Monday night to check his house condition was shocked to see an occupant. It was a crocodile, which has invaded his house since he went to a relief camp.
With the help of his neighbor, he got hold of the crocodile and bounded it with tight ropes. During the uncontrollable Kerala-flood, Thrissur was one among the other affected districts of Kerala and the others being Alappuzha, Idukki, Pathanamthitta, Malappuram, Ernakulam, and Wayanad. It was Kerala’s ever worst condition that the people of Kerala are experiencing.
Kerala-flood already took over 400 lives and million people had to take refuge in relief camps. The unstoppable rainfall also caused recorded destruction to both public and private properties. A snake catcher, Mustafa is a busy man, who resides in Malappuram. At the time of the flooding condition, Mustafa cached near about 100 snakes from the homes.
He said that “it’s quite natural that when floods come, snakes come with it and so do other insects from overflowing ponds and rivers. People who return to clean up their homes should be careful and not put their hands into shoes, under cracked tiles or in wet firewood.”
In Ernakulam District of Kerala, Angamaly Hospital is offering treatment to 52 people from dangerous snakebites. Reports from Pathanamthitta states that many people who returned home to check their houses, after seeing the snakes fled away from the place.
Kerala Government has announced the provision of adequate anti-venom drugs at all the flood-affected regions of Kerala.
