A man was found dead in Fuzhou, Jiangxi province, China after he was bitten by a venomous pet snake that he used to allegedly threaten a woman in having sex with him.
The incident happened on November 22 when the unnamed man checked into a hotel with his pet snakes. A woman later reported the man’s death to the police, according to Shanghaiist.
The woman told the police that the man raped her and threatened that if she refused to give in to his demands, he would let one of his three pet snakes bite her.
But in a shocking turn of events, the man was the one who got bitten by one of his pets as he was playing with it in the hotel’s bathtub.
During the investigation, authorities said that the man chose not to seek any medical assistance or call the police following the incident.
