A Nepalese farmer so enraged after being bitten by a snake turned tail on the cobra and bit it to death.
Mohamed Salmo Miya was bitten by the snake whilst working in a rice field. After returning home to get a torch, he hunted through the fields for the snake then attacked it with his teeth.
"I could have killed it with a stick but bit it with my teeth instead because I was angry," he told Nepalese newspaper Annapurna Post.
Although seeming bizarre, 55-year-old Miya had been told by a snake charmer he wouldn't become ill from a snakebite if he bit the snake to death, reported the BBC.
Although he carried on with his work, Miya went to hospital after he told his friends and family about the incident. Police said the man will not die from the bite and will not be charged with killing the reptile as it was a common cobra and not an endangered species, reported Reuters.
