Snakes on a Train in Vietnam
Samuel L. Jackson was nowhere to be found when an apparent sequel to ‘Snakes on a Plane’ was being filmed in Vietnam last Friday. Maybe because this was no movie.
A Vietnamese railway discovered 100 pounds of cobra snakes on a train, terrifying both passengers and officials.
These highly venomous king cobras were found in four separate cloth bags under one of the seats on this train. Officials believe that the snakes were most likely headed for Hanoi, Vietnam where these snakes are considered a delicacy.
Although cobras are protected by law in the country, it didn’t seem to stop the unknown smuggler from trying to get these squirming friends on a train. Passengers and officials alike were horrified, but the snakes were eventually taken by Forrest rangers and released back into the wild.
