Is the Discovery Channel really filming a snake eating a man alive?

Posted by in offbeat

TL;DR: That's the idea

The Discovery Channel has published a worrying preview on its website which suggests it will be filming a man being eaten alive by a snake for our viewing pleasure.

Apparently, naturalist and wildlife film-maker Paul Rosolie will enter the belly of an anaconda on 7th December in a "snake-proof" suit.

That is the only information the channel is giving us so far, but it appears that trailers for the programme have been removed from YouTube.

Another YouTube user has uploaded a ripped preview of the show in which Rosolie appears in the padded suit with a long tail which can presumably be used to yank him out if he gets stuck... contacted the Discovery Channel to find out whether the programme is still going ahead but we were told to wait for a statement to be issued.
