A video that is going viral on social media shows a monitor lizard being slit and its blood being poured into glasses. The incident took place in Pazhavanthangal. The visuals show a man slicing up the neck of a monitor lizard, locally called as ‘Udumbu’ in Tamil.

Then, the oozing out blood is collected in disposable glasses and gulped by a few men standing nearby. The reptile is protected under the Wildlife Act and its blood and meat are perceived to have health benefits. Some nomadic tribes have been traditionally engaged in hunting and selling it.
A probe has been initiated to apprehend the culprits.
