King Cobra Sightings in Hainan Prompt Safety Warnings, One Fatality Reported

Local authorities have issued a warning following reports of king cobra sightings, with one fatality already reported due to a snakebite.

On April 3rd, in a village located in Yingzhou Town, Lingshui, Hainan, a collaborative effort between firefighters and villagers resulted in the capture and elimination of two, 2-metre long king cobras.

The rainy season, spanning from April to October, marks a period of heightened snake activity, posing a significant increase in the risk of snakebites.

The incident, which coincides with the mango tree pruning season and sees a lot of farmers working in orchards, has raised speculation that a 39-year-old victim whose body was discovered on the mountainside alongside a deceased king cobra, was bitten while working in the area.

Following the death, villagers reported additional sightings of two king cobras in the vicinity. Despite speculation that the snakes might have been deliberately released, investigations into their origins remain inconclusive, according to village officials.

Authorities urge residents to exercise caution when encountering snakes outdoors, advising against provoking or approaching them. In the event of a snakebite, individuals are advised to remain calm, record the snake’s features if possible, and seek immediate medical attention. Attempting to extract venom orally or delaying medical treatment can exacerbate injuries and pose further risks to health.

Health professionals emphasize the importance of early intervention, recommending the administration of snake antivenom as the primary treatment for venomous snakebites. Timely medical intervention can significantly improve patient outcomes and mitigate the risk of complications.

Local authorities urge residents to remain vigilant and report any snake sightings promptly.
