Say Whut Nah!?!: Mom Let’s Snake Bite Baby To ‘Teach A Lesson’


Kinfolks! The f*ckery is real today! Apparently some kid’s mom allowed a snake to bite her child in Highland County, Florida to ‘To teach a lesson’. She hopped her dumb ass on Facebook and posted a video of said rat snake biting her 1-year-old. According to WSB-TV. 
The mom says she has no regrets after letting the snake bite her child,

“It had bitten me and my son and didn’t leave a mark, several times,” she said to WFTS. “So, I thought it was a good opportunity to introduce her without actually getting hurt.”

Watch the report HERE

The mother said her daughter was not hurt because the snake has teeth “too small to actually puncture the skin” Her intention was to teach her child a “valuable lesson” on how to handle reptiles.

I’m not sure how much of the lesson this 1-year-old comprehended, but I am definitely not here to tell people how to parent, but ma’am really!?!
