In the game of if you hit me, I hit you, a case of if you bite me, I bite you had not been seen, much less among children and animals. In Bingol, Turkey, a two-year-old girl bit a snake in self-defense after her snake had previously bitten her when she was playing in her yard.
The girl identified as SE was in the garden when a snake bit one of her lips. Because of this, and as a way of defending against the attack, the little girl bit the reptile in such a way that she ended up killing it. The horrified neighbors realized the situation when they found the little girl with the 50-centimeter viper held between her teeth.
The girl received first aid from the neighbors and was later transferred to the Bingol Maternal and Child Hospital to receive specialized medical attention. Fortunately, she was uninjured, except for possible pain left over from the bite.
In different areas of Turkey it is very common to find vipers in the middle of a patio or garden. In fact, this also happens in other countries such as India, where it was revealed some time ago that a 22-year-old boy did not suffer the same fate as the little girl, because just days after being bitten by a snake, he and his 38-year-old brother died.
Although the girl’s parents consider that she was protected by Allah, based on their religious beliefs, the truth is that the little girl was very lucky. This makes us reflect that in no part of the world is it good to leave children playing in the yard without supervision.
When the case of the little girl went viral, many Internet users were surprised by the way she defended herself, so they did not take long to express their reactions and even took it with a lot of humor and made memes of this story. Here we leave the best.
