deleray please dont post large pics as they get cut off in any case by most browsers which means most people skip over them. Stick to 600 x 600 pixels for this forum.

That was nice fat specimen. You must feel the same rage we do when you try to rescue and animal and somebody else has damaged it. The worst is they always seem so pleased with themselves.

Yes they think they did something good. Cobras are protekted here and you can go to jail for killing them. But they dont care.
