Several residents in Roosevelt, Brgy. Busay were shocked to see not just one but two cobras along the road last Jan. 26.

One of those who spotted the reptiles was Khenny Brian Surbano, who also recorded the reptiles which were apparently mating. 

In an interview with CDN Digital, Surbano said they were walking in Roosevelt around 3 p.m. when they spotted two snakes slithering in front of them.

However, out of fear, residents decided to kill them, added Surbano.

“Wala mi katawag sa barangay kay nahadlok na mi. Gipatay lang nila kay padung man namo ang cobra gud,” he said.

(We had not a chance to call the barangay officials because we were scared. They killed them (the snakes) because the cobras were heading towards us.)
