After being bitten by the snake, while he was working in his rice paddy on Tuesday, 55-year-old Mohamed Salmo Miya chased the snake, caught it and bit it until it died, the Annapurna Post reported, according to Reuters.
“I could have killed it with a stick but bit it with my teeth instead because I was angry,” Miya was quoted as saying.
Miya, who lives in a village some 125 miles (200 kilometers) southeast of the Nepali capital of Kathmandu, was receiving treatment at a village health post at the time of the news report and was not in danger of dying from his snakebite. He will not be charged with killing the snake, a local police official said, because cobras (called “goman” in Nepal) are not listed as endangered in the country. In short, a snake has died of manbite.
