Boy bites cobra, cobra dies

A poisonous snake attacked an 8-year-old boy in a small village around 215 miles northeast of Raipur, India. The boy did not die. The cobra did. After the boy bit it two times.

“The snake got wrapped around my hand and bit me,” the boy told local media, thru the New Indian Express. “I was in great pain. As the reptile didn’t budge when I tried to shake it off, I bit it hard twice. It all happened in a flash.”

According to Dr. Jems Minj, a medical officer, the Deepak “was quickly administered anti-snake venom and kept under observation for the entire day and discharged.”

It was later determined by local experts to be a “dry bite.”

“Deepak didn’t show any symptoms and recovered fast owing to the dry bite when the poisonous snake strikes but no venom is released,” local snake expert Qaiser Hussain said, as reported by the New Indian Express.

In August of last year, a 45-year-old tribal man reportedly bit a snake to death after the reptile bit him in a remote village in Odisha’s Jajpur district.

“Something bit on my leg while I was returning home on foot last night. I switched on my torch and found it to be a poisonous krait snake. To take revenge, I took the snake in my hands and bit it repeatedly, killing the viper on the spot,” said the tribal man.
