In an unusual case of role reversal, a man in Nepal killed a Cobra snake by biting it to death.

Mohamed Salmo Miya has been working in a rice paddy when the snake appeared and bit him. Enraged, the man chased the snake down and then decided to give it a taste of its own medicine by proceeding to bite it repeatedly until it was dead. Police have stated that he will not be charged over the attack because the snake species was not endangered.

"I could have killed it with a stick but bit it with my teeth instead because I was angry," said Miya after undergoing treatment at a local health post.

"A Nepali man who was bitten by a cobra snake bit it back and killed the reptile in a tit-for-tat attack, a newspaper said on Thursday."

Cruel idiot needs to control his temper! Hope something much bigger bites him next time... a tiger perhaps? See how he deals with that one!

Cruel idiot needs to control his temper! Hope something much bigger bites him next time... a tiger perhaps? See how he deals with that one! The community would hunt it down and kill it. People come first, jerks or not. Disclaimer: sexual-innuendo totally intentional and just for a laugh; no offence intended.

It reminds me of that scene from the movie 'Kingpin' when they are looking for Ishmal and ask the snake charmer if they had seen him.

Nah, just survival of the fittest. Snake bit first. Oh well thats perfectly ok then. dear. I must remember to bite the next person who steps on my toes at the bus stop. Dare I bother to venture into the debate that humans are a little way beyond the point of biting smaller creatures to survive? Therefore this is simply a cruel act? No.... I need to finish knitting this willy warmer for Bert! Much more worthwhile use of my time.

For some people, they show restraint with other people, animals they like, etc. If a mosquito bites you, ya smack it. Yeah, not the best comparison since snakes are a more com... [More]

In redneck circles such an action is usually preceded by the famous last words: Here - hold my beer and watch 'iss
