Mithila Wildlife Trust rescued a Banded Krait (Bungarus fasciatus) from Bhoyl village, Dhanusha. The snake was roaming nearby the Temple where Shivcharcha (a Special worship for Lord Shiva) was going on, so, people were misguided to superstitious beliefs. They hit the snake with a stick, the snake couldn’t move due to pain and they kept the snake in a steel drum. People coming to the temple were paying a minimum amount and they were praying the snake too.
