A Guy Put a Rattlesnake Around His Neck for a Photo, and Might Lose His Hand

36-year-old Alex Gomez was at his family’s ranch near L.A. on Monday, when he saw a four-foot rattlesnake in a field, picked it up, and put it around his NECK so his nephew could take a photo.

But the snake bit him on the hand, and he had to be rushed to the hospital. They pumped him full of anti-venom, but they might have to amputate his entire HAND. Obviously he’s not getting much sympathy from anyone at this point, and that includes his own MOTHER.

When she told him the local news wanted to interview her, he asked her to say no, but she told him she was DEFINITELY doing it, because he’s a “fool”, and she wants to embarrass him as much as possible.

Quote, “I’m going to teach him a real good lesson . . . No mercy for him.”

Click here are a video showing of Alex with the snake around his neck, one of him lying in his hospital bed, and his mom.

A Ten-Year-Old Got Bitten by a Shark, Then Went Back Into the Water to Save Her Six-Year-Old Friend

A ten-year-old girl named Kaley Szarmack was at the beach with her family near Jacksonville, Florida last Wednesday.

She was standing in about four feet of water when she got attacked by a SHARK. Luckily it was only about three feet long, but it still managed to open up a five-inch gash on her leg, so there was a lot of blood. That would be pretty terrifying, especially for a ten-year-old. But check out how she handled it:

After she got out of the water, she realized that a six-year-old girl she was playing with was still in danger. So she went back IN . . . grabbed the little girl . . . and made sure she didn’t get bitten.

It took 90 stitches to close the cut on Kaley’s leg, but her doctors say she should make a full recovery.

Two Women Got In a Crazy Fight When a JetBlue Flight Landed in New York

61-year-old Jean Ballantine of Brooklyn, New York was sitting in a window seat on a JetBlue flight from Jamaica to New York yesterday morning, and 52-year-old Mary Cannady of Linden, New Jersey was sitting next to her.

But when their flight landed and was taxiing toward the gate, Jean tried to climb OVER Mary. And we’re thinking that might NOT have been the first thing Jean did to bother Mary during the flight.

They started FIGHTING. Jean pulled out a small eyebrow razor and SLASHED Mary with it. Mary responded by pulling out her PEPPER SPRAY and spraying Jean in the eyes.

They were able to get those weapons on the plane because the security at the airport in Jamaica is pretty relaxed. In theory, if the flight had been out of the U.S., the TSA would’ve caught those items and confiscated them. In theory . . .

Jean was arrested for assault and weapons charges, and Mary was arrested for possession of pepper spray.

Henry is an absolute love bug. He likes nothing better than to sit on your lap or give you a hug. Henry is a big dog that looks like a large puppy but is believed to be 1-2 years old.

A Stray Dog Defended a Woman from Two Guys, So She Adopted It

A 25-year-old English tourist named Georgia Bradley was on vacation with her boyfriend in Greece recently.

She went for a walk on a secluded beach and got harassed by two random Greek dudes. One of them even grabbed her by the arm when she wouldn’t have a drink with them.

That’s when a stray DOG ran up and started BARKING at them. It stood right next to Georgia and kept barking. So the guys took off. Then it followed Georgia back to her place, and even chased after her CAR when she left for the airport. So once Georgia got home, she realized she couldn’t let it end that way.

She flew BACK to Greece, searched for the dog for FIVE WEEKS, finally spotted it on the same beach, adopted it and named it Pepper. She had to spend thousands of dollars to get her home, including flying back to Greece a third time and putting her in quarantine for three weeks.

And if somehow that’s not heartwarming ENOUGH for you, it also turned out Pepper was PREGNANT. A week after they got to the U.K., she gave birth to six puppies.
