ヘビ

28 Aug

A man in Tokyo was arrested after he called an ambulance because of a poisonous snake-bite he received by feeding one of his pets.

The police searched his apartment and discovered he had boxes of snakes. A total of 51 exotic poisonous snakes! And he didn’t have a license to own them as required by Japanese law.

He kept the snakes in plastic boxes stacked up in his apartment. If there was an earthquake, they could have easily spilled out and escaped.

Incidentally, last November, one of the man’s neighbors went to the hospital Emergency Room for a poisonous snake bite. The police suspect it was one of this man’s snakes.
