A teenager has been bitten on the hand by a snake while attacked by a gang armed with reptiles. The group was apparently carrying several snakes and forced one of them to sink its fangs into the 14-year-old, who was pinned against the wall by his attackers in Bradley Stoke on Saturday. Ambulance staff "consulted Google" and Bristol Zoo experts following the attack by the group who were "brandishing snakes", the ambulance service said. Incident support officer Michael Howells who was at the scene said: "In order to try and identify the type of snake I Googled 'snakes' on my mobile to show the patient. "He was reasonably sure he could identify the type, so I sent the image to our control room." Duty control manager Oliver Tovey added: "We contacted Bristol Zoo to talk to their snake expert. What we described they indicated was probably a type of python - so not venomous." The teenager, who was left with two puncture wounds, was taken to hospital for precautionary checks after being attended to by paramedics. Mr Howells added: "Although the patient was suffering breathing difficulties after the attack, this was probably due to panic rather than a reaction to the bite - I would probably be panicky if that happened to me."
