ecently, one unfortunate snake picked the wrong college dorm room to slither into.
Upon seeing the animal, some male students at the Chongqing Institute of Mechanical & Electrical Engineering did not flee their dormitory in terror. Instead, they caught the snake, skinned it, and chopped it up before placing it in a lovely-looking stew along with red dates, ginseng, orange peels, Angelica, and leeks.
The opportunistic meal quickly became big news on campus. On Sunday, a teacher at the university confirmed that the snake snack had occurred and that they weren’t happy about it, explaining that the students involved had received a lecture about doing harm to the school’s image.
Last week, another snake was purportedly more fortunate after being discovered lurking inside the squat toilet of a 6th floor flat in a Chengdu residential high-rise. The snake had made its way there after escaping from an upstairs neighbor who planned to use it in the making of some medicinal “snake wine” to help heal her ailing lower back.
