A snake spat up four eggs while trying to flee after being caught at a chicken farm in east India. On the morning of October 8, Rakesh Kumar Mohalik, a biologist at Keonjhar wildlife division got a call from Manoj Hansda of Kaptipada village in Mayurbhanj District, Odisha. According to the caller a Spectacled Cobra (identified by its hood marks) entered their chicken farm and had killed a chicken and was threatening the other birds. Mohalik rushed to the scene and found the snake had swallowed 4 out of 13 eggs.
