Idiot Father Lets Poisonous Snake Bite His Daughter â€“ On Purpose
You know when someone idiotically says, “I swear on my child’s life” to prove they’re telling the truth? I hate people like that. Well, one Australian father â€“ a snake handler â€“ took that statement literally when trying to prove that a bunch of normally deadly snakes were de-venomized and safe. That’s right, Raymond Hoser allowed a taipan and a death adder to bite his 10-year-old daughter while a shopping center audience watched on.
Worst. Dad. Ever.
Back in 2008, Hoser was convicted of breaching his Commercial Wildlife Demonstrator License. He was fined $12,000 for demonstrating with venomous snakes less than three meters from the public, working in accessible pits and demonstrating in a way that put the animals at risk of theft, reports The Manningham Leader. But Hoser claims there was never any risk to the public because the snakes had been de-venomized.
To prove his point, he created a video demonstration and used his young daughter as a test subject. He had the snakes bite his 10-year-old girl, leaving her with bleeding puncture wounds in her forearm. â€œShe was only bleeding and if theyâ€™d been venomous sheâ€™d have been dead in two minutes,â€ Hoser told the paper. â€œIf Iâ€™m confident to do that to her, it shows you I have never used a snake with venom.â€
