Man bites off snake’s head in ‘revenge attack’
LUCKNOW: A man in India bit off a snake’s head and chewed it before spitting it out, claiming that he did it for revenge after snake had bitten him.
After biting the snake, the man, identified as Sonelal, fell unconscious and was rushed to a community health centre. The doctor, however, could not find any bite marks on him.
According to medical officer Hitesh, “His neighbours claimed that Sonelal had been bitten by a snake. So, we started looking for bite marks but could not find any.”
“His nephew Nanhe said Sonelal was alone when the incident took place but someone told him that a snake had bitten him. We administered emergency medicines and kept him under observation,” a doctor at the hospital said.
Sonelal regained consciousness by after a few hours and was asked to elaborate what actually happened.
“He claimed that he was grazing his cattle when a snake bit him. He said that he picked up the snake in anger and bit off its head and chewed it before spitting it out,” said the pharmacist.
“It appears that the snake had not bitten him at all. We did not find any snake bite marks on his body. He turned unconscious because of consuming the snake’s body part which could have contained venom assuming that it was a poisonous snake, revealed the doctor.
