Stories of snakes biting people are commonplace, no doubt. But a man biting a snake in revenge for biting him first sounds like a story from the Hollywood movies!

But this is real as NAN reports of a farmer in northern India chewing off a snake’s head in revenge after the reptile bit him. Just as surprising as this could be, his attending doctors, who couldn’t believe their eyes said they had never come across such a bizarre case.

The incident, a local media reported on Wednesday, took place in Uttar Pradesh state’s Hardoi District at the weekend, when the man identified only by his first name, Sonelal – was rushed to a government health centre after locals found him unconscious.

The man told villagers that he was grazing his cattle in the fields when the snake bit him, which however made him so angry that he had to chew off the daring reptile’s hood before spitting it out.

Hear him: “The snake bit me, so I held its head and chewed it off, it died, then I brought it back to the village. I tore off its head again,’’ Sonelal told the ANI news agency.

Sanjay Kumar, a doctor who treated him said he was amazed that the man survived after biting the hood, which could have contained venom, assuming it was a poisonous snake. However, the local media said that the doctors failed to find any marks of snakebite on his body.

“I’ve never seen such a case in my life. The man was all right even after biting a snake,’’ Kumar said.

Witnesses who claimed they saw him ingest part of the snake said they suspected the man was addicted to drugs. Medical officials believe that the man’s abnormal reaction could only be explained if he was under the influence of drugs.
