DO NOT KILL A SNAKE IN YOUR HOUSE..
JUST CALL A SNAKE CATCHER OF
DIAL-A-SNAKE-CHARMER SERVICE IN INDIA

From Canadian Globe and Mail: Social Studies: Friday, July 30, 2004:

The first dial-a-snake-charmer service is set to be launched in India, reports The Far Eastern Economic Review.

The practice of luring serpents out of baskets using a "magical" flute is illegal these days, because of strict animal-conservation laws. But conservationists plan to find employment for out-of-work charmers by hiring them out to catch snakes that have slipped into people's homes.

A charmer can earn between 50 and 500 rupees ($1.40 to $14) to catch a snake, while he would typically earn just 75 rupees for a whole day of playing his gourd-flute and making a snake dance in front of crowds.
