What would be the point of killing the snake?
Once they 'have control' of the snake, it's a simple enough job to remove it from proximity to humans. Or was the idea to punish it for biting a superior being?

Most snakebites occur when people try to kill snakes. The next most occur when people try to catch them. There's no shortage of public information on how to treat snakebite, but it has to be done quickly. Surely we all have a responsibility to learn a bit of basic first aid.
