Allegedly intent on harming herself, a woman in Pennsylvania switched from a knife to poisonous snakes to ward off the Police Officers there to prevent her doing harm to herself.

Police Chief John Brown said officers answered a call Wednesday night about a woman threatening to harm herself and found the woman in her basement holding a knife to her throat.

She put down the knife but began waving the snakes at the officers, and was herself bitten on the arms and face. She put down the snakes and again grabbed the knife, but Mount Carmel police arrived with a stun weapon and used it to immobilize her, Brown said.

Being an avid climber my entire life, I have suffered 3 snake bites and I can assure you that her method would have persuaded me to back off...
