Wild animals are certainly no stranger to fighting off potential threats in their habitat. Yet, every now and then, even they find themselves in scenarios that they never anticipated.

This can mean any number of things, from accidentally coming across a vicious predator to wandering into unexpected traps that they can’t escape. When that happens, they might require help from an outside source.

Saurav Borkotoki, a wildlife activist in Tezpur, Assam, India, knows a thing or two about lending a helping hand to an animal in need. When he was recently alerted to a snake that had found itself in a sticky situation, he knew exactly what to do to save its life…

So, when he got a call about a python that found itself caught in tar, Saurav was more than ready to lend a helping hand. Wait until you see how far he goes to save a life…

That python sure is lucky that Suarav wasn’t afraid to help. Most of us probably wouldn’t have grabbed that snake so quickly!
