The man has been arrested in Sacramento, California after biting someone’s pet python.

54-year-old David Senk was arrested by police after police found him unconscious, with blood on his face.
It later emerged that he started an “unprovoked attack” against the four-foot snake after the pet owner allowed him to play with it.

“I feel horrible as hell about it,” Senk later said. “When I get drunk, I get crazy. I do not know. I’ve been an alcoholic for a long time,” he also said

Senk was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully maiming or mauling a reptile, and was charged with a felony cruelty to an animal.

“There was nothing to indicate that the snake provoked him at all,” a Sacramento police Sergeant said. “He just came out of nowhere and took a bite,” the police officer added.
