Man tries to shoot at snake… only injures himself

275x250.jpgA man in Florida was left with a serious gun-shot wound to his hand when he tried to kill a snake, but accidentally shot himself.

The 75-year-old is said to have found a large water moccasin snake near his front door and decided the best thing to do was shoot it.

After retrieving his .38 caliber handgun he fired a shot at the slithering snake, but missed.

As he fiddled with the weapon it once again fired, once again missing the snake… but this time his hand was not so lucky, and he shot two fingers on his left hand.

The elderly man was treated at the scene and then taken to hospital -- police say it's understood that the snake got away unharmed.
