The rescuers were concerned that the vicious member of the wild could easily get itself electroc*ted and therefore had to be removed from there, at all cost.

It reportedly took a whopping two hours of sweaty tug of war to get hold of the vehemently tough headed serpent.
One of the rescue crew members could be seen struggling to catch the snakes head, after another member lassoed its throat. Two others battered it with long sticks in attempts to weaken its overwhelming strength.
The snake allegedly slithered up the electricity pole so that it could strategically position itself to stalk, catch, and swallow birds that were perching themselves on the live cables.
The rescue team was reportedly alerted by a man who first spotted it and panicked.
'I was watching TV and my wife told me there was a snake outside. She wanted me to do something about it and I said "no". I called for help instead,' says the witness.
Those who witnessed the tussle unfold left the scene thoroughly entertained, complete with a video for future reference.
It is generally advisable that you report to the relevant authorities when you spot such a snake where it's not supposed to be. It can easily swallow your calf, goat,sheep or one of your kids if you are not careful enough.
