A 70-year-old farmer in Gujarat bit a snake to take revenge for attacking him. The farmer who was identified as Parvat Gala Baria of Mahisagar village was working on his field of maize when the snake slithered out and bit him.

The farmer’s daughter-in-law said that a relative who witnessed the whole bizarre incident took the snake and burnt it before rushing the farmer to a hospital along with dead reptile’s remains.

“Baria was standing near a spot where maize was being loaded from a field onto a truck. As snake slithered out and while others there ran away, Baria continued to stand claiming he had caught snakes earlier. He grabbed the snake which retaliated by biting him on the hands and face. However, Parvat bit back and killed the snake too,” said a villager.

Unfortunately, Baria was not treated on the first go and shifted through three different hospitals– from a government, private to a civil hospital where he died on Saturday evening from the venom injected into him by the reptile.

Earlier in February 2018, a similar incident occurred in Uttar Pradesh where a man Sone Lal was grazing his cattle when a snake bit him. Angered Sone Lal picked up the reptile and bit off its head and chewed it before spitting it. Sonelal was found unconscious and rushed to a local hospital where he regained consciousness a few hours later.
