An Indian man bit a snake on Sunday (July 28) after the reptile bit him.
Raj Kumar, a resident of Etah district in Uttar Pradesh state, was drinking alcohol at home when a rat snake entered his house and bit him. His father, Babu Ram, said on Monday (July 29) that his son chewed it into pieces in revenge.
The man’s family rushed him to a nearby hospital where his condition was reported by local media to be critical.
“This is definitely weird,” said Raj Kumar’s doctor, N.P Singh. “I have seen people coming in with snake bites but never somebody who bit a snake and then brought it with him in a bag.”
The snake was taken away by local residents and cremated.
