BONKERS TOWN — It's well documented that bears terrify me. They can climb trees, swim, run like the dickens, and they're strong as, well, bears. There is nowhere to hide.
So while bears scare me to death, snakes gross me out. So, with that said, this is the grossest video I've seen in a long time.
For some reason, I have no idea why, but this dude had a bag with 285 snakes in it and they were going to be released into the wild to torment humans. This maniac dumps the snakes and then, instead of bolting, sticks his hands into the tangled mess and spreads them out.
I found myself yelling at my computer screen at this guy to hightail it out of there and get his digits out of the snake ball, but he didn't listen.
I'm sure this mad man is actually just doing his job and saving nearly 300 snakes, which is a good thing because they're living and breathing animals, but it doesn't change the fact that this video gives me the creeps.
Give it a watch if you can stomach it.
