Man bites snake! Fatally wounded man kills beast with his teeth after it bit him first in India - before succumbing to his injuries
A man who was lethally bitten by a venomous snake took his revenge by ripping it apart with his teeth.
Parvat Gala Baria, 60, died on Saturday afternoon in Mahisagar, India, when the serpent sank its teeth into the villager's face.
But before he was rushed to Lunawada hospital, where the poison killed him only hours later, the wounded man summoned up the strength to bite his attacker and deliver a fatal blow.

Were we supposed to get shocked that the man bit the snake? Or was it meant to be funny? Either way, didn't work, sorry.

All these weird illnesses and strange things that happen in India make me more determined never to visit the place.

The snake was probably a Krait. Poor man.

Thanks for that Jack (DM). Insightful as ever. No time frame from the bite to the sad loss of life. No indication of the type of snake involved. Did you copy the story from a facebook post from a few years ago by any chance?
