He ate my birds, so I ate him – Oklahoma farmer
While a pastor in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria, has been making waves locally for convincing his congregants to eat snakes, over in Oklahoma in the US a bird farmer has exacted his revenge on a more than 1.8m-long snake by eating it.
NBC News reported that the farmer had discovered that his birds were being stalked and eaten by a snake. Once he had figured out what was going on, he was able to catch the snake before it could do any further damage.
Speaking to NBC News, the farmer said: “I was a little irritated that the snake ate my guineas.”
While others may have opted to kill the snake and dispose of it, this farmer took the road less travelled, fired up the grill and had seared snake for supper, saying: “He ate my birds, so I ate him.”
The outspoken man did not think his actions were out of the ordinary, but instead appeared quite impressed with the way he handled the situation.
When the reporter asked him if the snake tasted at all like chicken, the farmer replied confidently: “It didn’t taste like chicken. But yeah, it was pretty good; it tasted like fish.”
