A Nepali man who was bitten by a cobra snake bit it back and killed the reptile in a tit-for-tat attack.
Nepal daily newspaper Annapurna Post reported Mohamed Salmo Miya chased the cobra, caught it and bit it until it died, after the snake had first bitten him in a rice paddy.
"I could have killed it with a stick, but bit it with my teeth instead because I was angry," said the 55-year-old Miya, who lives in a village some 200km southeast of the Nepali capital of Kathmandu.
The snake, called "goman" in Nepal, is also known as the common cobra.
Police official Niraj Shahi said the man, who was being treated at a village health post and was not in danger of dying, would not be charged with killing the snake because the reptile was not among snake species listed as endangered in Nepal.
