Given my recent posts about people fighting back against their attackers, I just had to include this story too. According to the story in the title link, a Mexican farmer was bitten by a poisonous snake.
The surprise attack angered him so much, he decided to strike back. "It made me very angry when the snake bit me, so I grabbed it and bit the tail," Torres told Mexican newspaper Reforma.
In the ensuing battle, the farmer received 30 snake bites, and the farmer said he bit the snake 5 times before it managed to slither away covered in blood.
"It’s not over," Torres told Reforma. He promises once he is well, he will go in search of his nemesis and finish the fight.
This isn't exactly what I had in mind when I suggested people fight back against their attackers, but I suppose it ended well as the farmer did survive the encounter.
