A video that has recently got viral shows a one-year-old baby being bitten by a snake rat repeatedly. Apparently, the mother of the child allowed this as a way of teaching the little girl a lesson. The woman is now under investigation.
The woman from Sebring, Florida had put up the video of the incident on Facebook. It was reported to the local sheriff. Soon afterwards, the video was removed by her. However, she still defends her action saying she was “introducing” her daughter to the snake.
The young mother has claimed that she found the snake on her driveway. She said she let the snake bite her and her son. She told the local media, “It had bitten me and my son and didn’t leave a mark, several times. So, I thought it was a good opportunity to introduce her without actually getting hurt.”
“People are too sensitive,” she continued. “They just think that I hurt my child intentionally. The people that know me know that I would never hurt my children.” She is also known to have said that this was a way to teach her kids how to handle wildlife. And, the mother believes that her goal was accomplished as the baby girl now is not scared of snaked but doesn’t want to touch them either.
According to the mother, the snake that she put in front of her daughter had very small teeth which would not make it possible to puncture human skin. Police have already interviewed her and are investigating the matter further. No charges have been put on her yet.
