SACRAMENTO-

A man is facing animal cruelty charges for biting a two-foot long python, and he says he has no memory of it.

Thursday afternoon Sacramento cops were called to a neighborhood in the Del Paso Heights area for a possible attack victim.

While talking to the “victim” who had blood in his mouth, 57-year-old David Senk, another witness told cops that Senk took two large bites out of a live python.

Animal control officers checked out the snake and found it was not in good condition. They sewed up a two-inch hole in the belly of the snake, and they found a few ribs were missing.

Senk was arrested for animal cruelty. From jail, he told FOX40 he has no memory of biting the snake, and admits he has a drinking problem.

“I did what?”, asked Senk when questioned by FOX40’s Lonnie Wong. “If you find the owner, tell him I’m real sorry. I’m glad the snake will be all right. I’m willing to help pay for medical expenses,” said Senk.

The snakes owner could not be reached and Senk says he doesn’t know how he got in contact with the Python.  He also admitted to not liking snakes very much.
