When I read this news, I meditated on God’s promise in Isaiah 65:25;

“The wolf and the lamb will feed together. The lion will eat hay like a cow. But the snakes will eat dust. In those days no one will be hurt or destroyed on My Holy Mountain. I, the LORD, have spoken!”

This verse directly applies to the state of the Millennial Kingdom of Christ, in which the effects of the curse on the animals is to be removed. However, from this verse it seems that the curse on snakes is permanent.

If interpreted figuratively, it may mean God here promises to take off the fierceness of the spirits of His people’s enemies (described as wolf, lion, snakes etc.), so that they shall live quietly and peaceably together in His Kingdom on earth. That means the evil dispositions of sinners shall be completely mortified (like lamb and cow etc.), all shall live in harmony in the peaceful Kingdom of God.
