VIDEO: Python attack caught on camera

(WFLA) – A python attack was caught on camera in India this week. NBC shared the footage of the bite.

Officials in India’s northwestern state of Rajasthan Friday said forest department officials were removing a sizable python from the grounds of a school where it was found.

As they were leaving the area with it, the men stopped to pose for a photo. That’s when one of them backed in to snap his own selfie with the snake.

The constrictor lunged out and bit the man on the shoulder. Local media reported the man’s injury was not serious. He walked away on his own after the bite.

Forest officials continued on with removing the python from the populated area. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
