‘Presence’ of anaconda snake eggs baffles Pulwama locals
The presence of snakes and Anaconda eggs has created a fear psychosis among people in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district. The mysterious presence of Anaconda eggs has not only baffled people but the officials from Wild Life Department are also clueless.
Reports said that anaconda snake eggs were found by people at various villages in agricultural land and orchards including Mitrigam, Sirnu, Muran, Rohmu, and Monghama. Showkat Ahmed, a local from Pulwama told CNS that the other day he was in the orchard when he found a bag in which anaconda eggs were present. “The bag was sealed with a label. The department of wildlife Brazil was written on it,” he said.
Locals added that they found a large number of snakes roaming in the orchards. “The presence of snakes in orchards and fields in Pulwama is a rare phenomenon. We never come across any snake in our fields but now we are perplexed and baffled,” they said.
Meanwhile, a team from Wild Life Department visited different villages but said they didn’t find any snake anywhere. “There is nothing new in it. In Kashmir, we find snakes at different places but the presence of anaconda snakes and eggs is totally new and strange,” said an official.
