Mutual biting between man and cobra ends with cobra’s death.

A farmer in Nepal who was bitten by a cobra has retaliated by biting it to death.

The BBC reports Mohammed Salmodin took the advice from a snake charmer who told him “nothing will happen” if you bite a snake after it has attacked.

“When I realised that a snake had bit me, I went home to get a torch and saw that it was a cobra. So I bit it to death,” he told BBC Nepali’s Bikram Niraula in Biratnagar.

The bite took place in a village 200km south-east of Kathmandu.

The man was also quoted as saying he could have killed the animal with a stick but “bit it with my teeth” because he was “angry”.

Police official Niraj Shahi said the man was receiving treatment at a health post in the village and his injuries were not life-threatening.
He will not be charged with killing the snake because it was not among an endangered species in Nepal.

Linky.

Sure wouldn’t want to get on his bad side!

Well, snake is considered a delicacy in some parts of the world.

I can highly recommend rattlesnake when you are in a part were they serve it.
However, let the killing part to the experts. And if you wish to do it yourself: be VERY carefull with it´s head. It will happily keep biting whatever it can sink it´s reflex driven teeth in…
Bury it deep!
Maybe I´ve no trouble with snake as we dutch are very fond of smoked eel (and herring, salted and raw).

Bon appetite!
