Snake preserved in wine bites woman

A woman in northern China was rushed to hospital after she was bitten by a snake that had been pickled in wine for three months.

The surprise attack happened after Liu, from Shuangcheng, Heilongjiang Province, opened the bottle to add more alcohol, reports the Global Times.

The snake jumped out and bit her on the hand. Liu made a full recovery after she was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Liu had bought the snake live in June and put it into a bottle of wine to create snake wine to treat her rheumatism.

Alcohols containing preserved snakes boasting medicinal properties are common in China.
