Bhubaneswar, Jul 7:
A cobra and a monkey were killed during a fierce duel between them in Phulapokhari village under Barang block near the Odisha capital on Sunday.
As per sources, the cobra used to live near a tree in Amar Beura’s backyard for quite some time. The incident took place when the monkey also wanted to climb that tree.
While the insecure snake was hell-bent on blocking the road of the monkey, the stubborn monkey was not one to give up.
The snake attacked the monkey first following which the monkey retaliated and fatally injured the snake. After a prolonged fight, the duo died.
The next morning, the villagers took the bodies of the monkey and the snake and cremated them at the village funeral ground.
