the year of living dangeroussssssly:
INDONESIA MAY USE COBRAS AGAINST RIOTERS
https://www.deseretnews.com/article/537 ... OTERS.html

Police on the outskirts of Jakarta plan to use poisonous cobras against "brutal rioters," a senior officer said.
Lt. Col. Alex Riatmodjo, head of of the Bekasi police district, said the poisonious cobras were being examined as a crowd-control method. "Now we have three weapons - the cobra, the dog and hot silver (bullets)," Riatmodjo told Reuters. Seven snakes were already in a basket and glass container at the Bekasi police station, east of the city center, he said. The precinct planned to acquire 24 cobras, including some king cobras.
Riatmodjo said the snakes do not normally attack people unless they are disturbed, so police would have to stir up the reptiles themselves before they were used against rioters.

It would be ironic if the snakes bit the cops who are stirring them up. There's nothing like misplaced aggression.
