Man Bites Live Python

No, this isn’t the plot to the latest Hangover movie. David Senk, who was arrested last week after biting a live python at California mini-mart, now claims he has a drinking problem and does not remember the attack. Senk, who also says he cannot remember how he got from the bar to the mini-mart, allegedly bit the live snake twice, causing it “extensive injuries.” The python had emergency surgery and had two of its ribs removed. The attack was apparently unprovoked: Sacramento police Sergeant Andrew Pettit said it looked like Senk “just out of the blue took a bite.” Senk admits that he is “not too fond of snakes but I try not to bite them.”
