Cobra as Guard

For precious items safety is an important matter of consideration. So, retailer Harrods took a strange action for the safety of a 62,000 pound (120,000 dollar) pair of ruby- sapphire- and diamond-encrusted Rene Caovilla sandals. These sandals were launched at London and a live Egyptian Cobra patrolled the shoe counter! They did it to ensure the safety of the sandals during the launch.

A spokeswoman for Harrods admitted that the cobra had been hired strictly for Monday's launch of the shoe collection. "The snake has now been returned to its owner," she said. So no need to fear snake bites at the shoe counter, then. "Not unless you are a burglar," the spokeswoman said.
