  • People go out of their way to purposely kill venomous, or even non venomous snakes quite often. Whether these two darlings had this intention idk. But we live in a brainwashed world.

  • Such a shame they would shoot that cobra like that. Makes you sick to the stomach when you slow down the footage and see the holes in the hood. No ill will but wouldn't it have been better and safer to just leave? I don't have any venomous pets, but I do keep a beautiful 4ft snow cornsnake, and he's just gorgeous. Most people are curious when they meet him (he's named after Dwight on the office) but a few have been startled or repulsed. Always hurts to see that reaction, because old Dwight is a doll to handle. He's a super inquisitive snake, but relatively calm/still compared to most corns. He's never struck out of fear, but I did manage to get my hand in between his thawed mouse and him once. It didn't hurt, left a unique looking U shape pattern though! Lol. The good news is that for every person who's been afraid of him, two or three others took the chance to hold him and got to see how sweet he is first hand. Thanks Dingo. You bring a lot of love and good will toward these magnificent snakes

  • The only time I ever shot a snake was because it was an eastern brown, it was very very close to children and animals and no one with experience was nearby for capture. I didn’t like doing it, and it certainly wasn’t fun.

  • I'm scared of snakes, just as much as the next person, but I would NEVER kill a snake- let alone one that is just defending itself. We encroached on ALL the animals territory, and defensive behaviour is normal. These men should be ashamed of themselves.

  • People down where my mother was raised here in the US have the same fear of snakes. They will kill a snake even if it's harmless. They do have Timber Rattlers and Copperheads down there but even harmless Garter snakes are killed. One lady would be out gardening and see a snake and she wouldn't enter the garden again until her husband killed the snake. They would always worry about their kids going into the woods for fear they would be bitten by a snake. In all the years I was down there walking around in the woods I only saw one venomous snake. That was a copperhead from a distance. It never once threatened me and although I was carrying a gun I was never tempted to shoot at it. Interestingly my mom never was afraid of snakes. I would catch them all the time at home and bring them in and show them to her when I was a kid. She never was afraid, in fact she liked snakes. I caught a whole hand full of tiny Garter snakes and brought her a pocket full to show them to her. I said, "Look at what I found." and three tiny snakes stuck their heads out of my pocket. Actually they weren't too interested in leaving my pocket once they felt the heat of my skin. I kept them in there for some time before putting them back where I found them.

  • I been keeping snakes since i was six year old and this video of the shooting of that cobra really rattles me up! I own snakes including madagscan boas, common boas, rat snakes too name a few. And countless lizards and other reptiles. As im in the uk and have four kids under 8 i don't keep any venemous beauties yet! But when they are old enough i will as its on my list. I do get the opportunity to work with venemous snakes thankfully as i rescue and relocate adders throughout the UK as generally when found they are under threat from those who fear what they dont understand. Keep up the good work Dingo and much love to you and you're family. Stay safe and always look forward to the videos you make as Education is all we can do to teach people about these stunning and majestic animals!

  • Truth be told I can't stand people that kill other animals for sport or out of fear. Ever since I was 6 years old I've loved snakes, spiders, Lions, Tigers, Bears. I've even been lucky enough to free handle certain snakes and spiders and even hold a bear cub. All animals only attack if they feel threatened. If you just simply give them space then they odds on you being attacked by any animal are pritty much slim to none. There is no need to be afraid of these animals cause they done want to attack and kill humans. They just simply want to left alone. The sooner people realise that the better off the world will be.

  • I don't know the back story of the video, but what if the Cobra was near their camp or even home? I know I wouldn't want a King Cobra roaming around me. If they were really just in the bush, and there was no reason to mess with it, then I agree that they were out of line. I would be excited to see a wild King Cobra minding its own business. I live in the U.S. the only venomous snakes that I've seen in the wild are Timber Rattlers and Copperheads, and I've never messed with them.

  • Dingo I enjoy watching your videos. I know you respect the snakes and love them but they can't speak, just like when you might snap all of a sudden and say something you don't mean. To respect them and really respect them they can't speak and I feel like your luck will run out. How can they tell you when they don't want you handling them. Their body language can be fine one moment and then they can make humans not being in a great mood and that's when your time of luck will run out. Is it work making Christy a widow and your two children growing up without a father. Don't take this wrong I love watching different videos of snake handlers. But above all remember what you will be losing when that snake changes his disposition and your luck one-day Runs Out. The question to you what's more important your family or bothering those snakes when they can't speak and say they don't want you touching them are showing them off to make videos and I know you'll make an income off of it

  • Obviously whatever they did has to be within the laws of their government. I don't know if that snake is a protected species. However, if I had a piece of land and I had kids, I might be inclined to get snakes removed from areas around where my kids would be (if I were to see them). Obviously getting a snake handler to remove it would be ideal, but that might cost more that you would be comfortable with (I believe that it was ~AUD 100 for getting a snake removed in Brissy when I was there). I don't like killing animals, but I will set up a trap to kill rats at my home, and I would get snakes removed in whatever way I can get them removed, if they are a nuisance. Out in the wild is totally different though, if you can avoid the snake, then just walk away (you don't get bit if you are not there). long story short, if they had to off the snake, then they should have offed it in a mature way. Why did they have to record killing the animal and in such a way? It didn't even serve the purpose of educating people about hunting or the like...

  • Love all your videos Dingo. I know you are an expert handler and know the behaviour of snakes extremely well but I have been worried recently about how relaxed you seem to be sometimes when handling them. Please don't get bitten with your allergies. The world needs you around for many more years to educate people about snakes. The snakes can't afford to lose you.

  • That sucks. Shooting the animal should be the last resort, and out of self-preservation. Nothing in that clip shows that these two didn’t have a way around the snake. In fact, it seems that they even provoked the snake into being defensive initially and then of course it then attacking out of its own self-presentation when being shot. Clearly, this is abuse of that animal and not the two of them protecting themselves.

  • ......if seeing people shoot snakes is not to your liking, the last pace I would advise you to travel is to right here in the great US of A! Esp. where you plan to visit, the South! And were you to snap on somebody for doing so, they'd likely say "well what about this" while shooting it again.....when it comes to snakes and guns (ESP IN THE SOUTH) the most common thing they are used for apart from hunting, are killing snakes! it's just the way of life for us down here in these sub tropical southern states. However, they aren't killed just to be killed, well not all the time, most of the time, like in Louisiana, they serve them as meals at restaurants! So they do not go to waste. My dad raised me with the saying "The only good snake is a dead snake," despite how much I despise that saying and the meaning behind it, I love all animals, and snakes are my favorite. I wanted to be a reptile breeder, but with my dad's infatuation that snakes are evil (Southern Baptist.....), I've never been able to pursue that career.....so here I am, 27, still living at home....unable to do what I was meant to do, and love!....I don't want any sympathy, I'm just making you aware of what to expect when you get here...

I would probably shoot as a fear reflex. If the distance was longer, I would give the snake It's space and let It be. But that is why i watch this channel. To learn.

I think most people would, it's easy to stand the moral high ground when you are safe and say it's wrong and you would never do that, but all of that changes when you feel in danger and not trained to deal with it.

  • I’m not going to judge what they did as being right or wrong? We have to look at everything according to the factual circumstances and proper contexts of the situation, if known? In this video, we don’t have all of the facts or context of the situation of why they did what they did. As much as I enjoy the videos that Dingo does and I consider him to be an expert of almost all snakes, venomous and non venomous alike, Dingo is making assumptions of them shooting the snake due to fear. Granted, fear could have been the reason. But what if they are just outside of a village and that same cobra has gone into the village on numerous occasions, it has been relocated several times, but due to there being an easy food source in the village and/or surrounding areas, that same cobra keeps returning and as a result of it continuously returning to the village, men, women and children have all been bit by the cobra and many of them have died. What if that was the situation? And if it was that situation and the folks that just relocated it again, felt that they now had no other alternative but to shoot it, because it still continued to return back to the village every single time and in that process, bite people and animals. Then what they did by shooting the snake would be very justified even though it sucks seeing the snake get shot twice. No matter what the reason was, as to why they decided to shoot the snake, I do hate the fact that they didn’t get a head shot on the snake and then killed it instantly. With the snake being shot, regardless of if it survived being shot twice, or if it eventually died and succumbed to its wounds, the snake would have suffered in pain for an unknown amount of time. If you have to kill something, then kill it quick so that it does not suffer for any prolonged amount of time.

  • Any time a video comes up in my recommendations that involves peoples shooting snakes (usually it's rattlesnakes) it's very aggravating. People do in fact kill out of fear. But it's due to the way generations of people have been raised over centuries with misinformation being passed around. In my opinion the only real way to end it is mass spread education, as well as physically picking up one of these animals to show people that they're not what they're being made out to be. If anyone reading this loves animals and is comfortable with doing it, go become a public educator and do shows for the public like dingo is doing. Or even film youtube videos of you interacting with them. If enough people engage eventually over time things like this will cease. 🐍🙂❤

I am a bit of a hunter myself... and a snake of any kind to me is a waste of my time and ammo. 3. Little do Beavis and Butthead know... shooting a snake puts you in more danger than the snake biting you due to the threat of ricochets... especially with the way these two were shooting. Just let the snake go.

Your solution of education is the best way to proceed, and even though some folks watching your videos (see some of the comments on this thread) don't get it yet, maybe they will learn from you. Your relationship with an amazing animal like Thor the king cobra who could kill you many times over, proves everything you are saying about the mental attitude of snakes. It's very evident that human fear and ignorance is what causes problems between these animals and themselves. Keep doing what you're doing....WE LOVE YOU!
