The controversy around snake charmers, explained

"The snake is not dancing, it's terrified. All it wants to do is escape" It may be a major draw for tourists around the world, but snake charming remains controversial for its abusive practices.

    The government must think an alternative solution from which snake charmers get other livelihood and the animals can be saved.

    Cobras aren't endangered Species and in years to come they won't be they are one of the most procreating reptiles and are lethal within human communities. Despite the Snake charming business is here for centuries even in Africa and Middle East..they shouldn't leave these people these charmers without livelihood so what if they take handful of snakes and use them for amusement purpose.

    I have one question. Why in 2020 do we still have the caste system? For a society to flourish and become, no individual should be categorized to a specific segment of the population the day they are born!

    This is absurd. You are running propaganda. People are eating snakes in many countries and you are reporting terrified snakes. We rever snakes in India. The snake is livelihood for sapera community and you want to starve them. Go other countries and report where snakes are being eaten. Sapera consider snake as their God and take proper care. They don't want their source of livelihood to die. Educate yourself and learn responsible reporting.
