Angry king cobra is given water from a bottle after drought forced it to enter Indian village in search of a drink 

The King Cobra normally avoids confrontations with humans but desperate times call for desperate measures.

This deadly snake was so thirsty during a drought that it broke into an Indian village in a frantic search for water.

Dramatic footage shows the kind-hearted villagers looking after their local wildlife.

One man can be seen pouring a bottle of water over the snake’s head as it greedily laps the liquid.

The man, knowing that the situation could turn nasty at any second, holds a snake catcher so he can grab the serpent in case things kicks off.

He is assisted by his friend who holds the cobra’s tail to prevent it launching a vicious attack. 

The 12ft cobra was rescued from a village in Kaiga township. Some parts of southern India have been hit by drought, making water scarce. 

Wildlife officials say the drought has severely affected wild animals in the region.

So when the team of rescue workers found the cobra, the first thing they did was to offer it water.

The thirsty cobra can be seen gulping down water from the bottle. The brave rescuer also poured water over the snake’s head in an attempt to cool it down.
