Shocking footage shows the moment a father in India beat a highly-venomous King Cobra to death with his bare hands.
The father can be seen seizing the massive snake by the tail and hauling it from a tree, before mercilessly beating it against the ground.
He clutches the dying animal’s tail as he swings it in circles around his body, beating its head repeatedly against the dirt track.
The dust flies up as the man swings the reptile by its tail into the dirt seven times before releasing it.

The snake, which is one of the most venomous species in the world, had reportedly killed the man’s young son before he killed it in a fit of rage.
He eventually releases the dying animal, which twitches slightly on the ground before lying still.
The footage was shared on YouTube, and has been viewed more than 700,000 times.
According to the National Geographic, King Cobras will avoid human contact when possible but are fiercely aggressive when cornered.
Their potent venom is enough to kill 20 people, or even an elephant, with just one bite. A King Cobra Bites His Son
