Lawsuit: Woman Claims She Was Attacked By Big Black Walmart Snake

It’s really quite shocking how often we found ourselves typing the words “lawsuit,” “snake” and “Walmart” in the same headline. Anyhow, here we go again. A woman is suing Walmart after she says a giant black snake attacked her as she was choosing plants.

From the lawsuit:

While shopping in the store, [the plaintiff] felt a sharp sting in her forearm. When she pulled her arm back from the plants, a large, black snake was attached to her arm. The snake had bitten deeply into her arm and attached itself to her with its fangs. The snake was long enough that it hung down below her knee.

[The plaintiff] shook her arm to try to get the venomous reptile to release its painful grip. As she did so, the snake became more aggressive, wrapping itself around her leg and tightening its bite. [The plaintiff] was finally able to remove the fangs of the snake from her forearm by pulling against the snack that was now wrapped around her leg.

Fearing the snake would continue to bite her, she shook her leg to remove it. As she did so, she injured her knee on the display table holding the plants.

That sounds horrible. It also sort of sounds like Lemony Snicket wrote it.
