A video uploaded by People's Daily, China, shows the horrifying moment a police team in China pulled out a massive king cobra from a car's engine compartment. The cobra, 3 meters or approximately 10-feet-long, was captured in southwest China's Yunnan province. In the video, a team of four policemen work together to open the minivan's hood and pull out the snake out with snake catcher sticks. Weighing a whopping 4.6 kg, the king cobra in question also refused to get into the bag that the policemen had ready for it.
