Cobra bites chef 20 minutes AFTER head was cut off

By Sowetan LIVE | 2014-08-25 12:46:31.0 | COMMENTS [ 69 ]

A chef's unusual meal choice came back to bite him, twenty minutes after its head was chopped off.

According to the Mirror, the Indochinese spitting cobra clamped down on chef Peng Fan's hand, injecting him with a fatal shot of venom.

Peng was reportedly tossing the cobra head into the trash when it came back to bite him, authorities said.

The added that diners who were eating at the restaurant during the headless snake attack recall hearing sudden screams echoing from the kitchen. One of these diners, Lin Sun, described what happened next:

“We were in the restaurant having a meal for my wife’s birthday when suddenly there was a lot of commotion. There were calls for a doctor in the restaurant but unfortunately by the time medical assistance arrived the man had already died. After we heard that we did not continue with our meal.”

In my "wild youth" my friends and I killed a boomslang that was threatening to bite my mother. Having read about it, we skinned it and then cooked and ate it, having first pulled out the poison bearing fangs. It was actually delicious. I must say that was the only time and I don't think I would do it again. The boomslang itself was such a "pretty" snake.

Hey, I eat a veggie meal twice a week, for economic and health reasons, and my one son is a vegetarian. However, I enjoy meat, and have no issues with eating it. I ate snake ONCE, and believe that one should try new things. Curiosity keeps one young.

HE HE HE, That takes me back, Boet! I used to laugh and laugh at the sight of "afkop-hoenders" racing off after having their heads copped off. They look so funny. Did you ever "hypnotise" chickens as a kid? Also hysterically funny.

Hypnotize it? Maybe, I think I once did. It was a chick. I know about the headless chicken. We used to chase it. LOL

You lie a chicken on sand or something, with it's neck extended. Then you take a stick or something and draw a line from the beak outward for about 15 inches or so. Thje chicken will then just lie and there and make this odd gurgling sound for quite a while, maybe up to 20 minutes.... and it goes off laying for a day or two. Very funny to see. Kids' stuff, I know, but hey I was a kid when I did those things.

Crazy is relative. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly. If you go to the far east, they eat anything that doesn't move fast enough - spiders, snakes, roaches, you name it!
