In a bid to combat the growing popularity of the white mamba, Indian authorities have launched a campaign to convince consumers to ditch the sport.
In the run up to the new season, the Indian government has been working on a strategy that aims to tackle the popularity of black mambas.
According to a report in The Times Of India, the Ministry of Home Affairs has set up a department called Black Mamba Awareness and Training.
The department has also set up six different departments to deal with the issue, and is targeting a total of Rs 25 crore in grants to local organisations to tackle black mammas.
It has also launched a new campaign called Black Men Don’t Wear White and is aiming to persuade people to wear black, especially among women.
The government has also announced that it will start distributing black mams to the country’s 1.5 billion population.
Black mambals are the world’s largest black cat species and are native to India and Bangladesh.
