A drunk man in the Indian state of Karnataka got so infuriated when a snake crossed his path that he bit its skin several times.
The man, identified as Kumar, 38, of the village of Mustur was returning from a liquor store on his bike when a venomous snake got caught in it. He picked up the snake and rode the motorbike, keeping the snake around his neck up to some distance but suddenly halted and started yelling at the snake as if it would understand.
"How dare you block my path," said Kumar while biting the snake.

“The snake has troubled me earlier. I was angry as it came under the wheels this morning too,” Times of India quoted Kumar as saying.

Meanwhile, long queues continued to for outside liquor shops amid the much-anticipated resumption of liquor sales. Social distancing norms were flouted outside many stores, and some were forced to shut down due to large crowds; local police have been tasked with maintaining order.
