HONG KONG police found nearly 800 cobras that they believe were being smuggled for sale as a delicacy, a report said on Sunday.

The 789 venomous Chinese cobras were found packed into 181 plastic boxes and hidden in bushes behind a beach on Hong Kong’s Lantauis-land, the Sunday Morning Post newspaper reported.

Animal management officials put the snakes down with lethal injections, saying they could not be released into the wild because they would pose a threat to people’s safety.

Chinese cobras are commonly used to make snake wine, medicine and soup, and are particularly popular in mainland China.
