POLL – What Is Proper Way to Remove a Biting Venomous Snake?

This poll has closed. The results are below. How you remove a venomous snake from biting, is your choice. Ideally, you were prepared for a bite and had some mouthwash in a bottle close by. Mouthwash has been shown to stop the grip of snakes as they bite down.

If it’s a king cobra or something that can kill you within 20 minutes, you should probably jam something into its mouth to get it to release. Basically if a king cobra has you, get it off at any cost.
