Cobra chomped by angry victim

August 15 2002

A cobra got more than it bargained for in eastern India after a female victim of its bite bit back, according to a report.

India's United News reported Nasim Bibi, 25, of West Bengal, sank her teeth into the snake and killed it yesterday.

Bibi was sleeping with her two children at her home in Hatikanda village when the cobra slith ered in and sank its fangs.

She woke up in pain to find the snake making its getaway. She grabbed it and bit down as hard as she could, killing it in the process.

Police said Bibi received treatment for the snakebite at a local hospital
