“Let sleeping dogs lie”—this is an idiomatic expression which means that we should leave someone or something alone or else, we might get in trouble.
These fishermen from Brazil should have thought about that when they did something as ludicrous as this.
These men decided it would be fun to poke and wake a sleeping anaconda in the Santa Maria river, and they have incriminated themselves by filming the incident too.
They first saw the reptile in an overhang. One of the fishermen kept on poking it with a wooden oar until the distressed anaconda emerges and tries to escape. They saw that the snake’s midsection was huge and it probably just fed.
But these men hadn’t had enough of their fun. As the snake tried to swim away from the foolish men, one of them grabbed the anaconda’s tail from their boat and hauled it back in the middle of the river.
I would have asked these men to leave the snake alone. Aside from the fact that it was dangerous, they were lucky that the enormous snake can’t take another meal that time.
Watch the video:
Although they eventually let the huge reptile go, the Brazilian Environmental Authorities did not let the incident pass. The men were asked to pay a fine for what they did to the anaconda.
Do you think these men got what they deserved? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Kim Jong-Un of North Korea Claimed that a Unicorn Lair was Discovered in Pyongyang
North Korea’s supreme leader had their country’s inimitable news agency reconfirm the existence of a unicorn lair in Pyongyang.
Having isolated itself from the rest of the world, no one can tell or sure what goes on in North Korea.
The Hermit Kingdom strictly forbids foreign media, tourist interactions, and basically, no one there is allowed to use the internet. It seems that the government wants to control all the information that goes in and out of their country.
Three years ago, their supreme leader Kim Jong Un ordered the Korean Central News Agency---North Korea's official and reputable state news agency---to validate his suspicions and reconfirm the existence of a secret unicorn lair that was discovered by archeologists in Pyongyang City....
China Hosts ‘Miss World Bikini’, But Forgets to Invite Candidates from the Rest of the World
