A buddy of mine at work showed me these today. His wife's friend was weeding out her flower garden and got struck on the hand by a Copperhead that she didn't see. This was last week. This is the 5th person I know of in McMinn and Monroe counties that have been bitten by Copperheads in less than a year. Oddly...none of them were trying to catch the snakes or trying to harm them. In all cases, they were unawares to the snake even being there until after they had already been got. Here are some pics of her hand:

Aw snap, man, that's heinous! Our cook at church camp one year got tagged on the finger just like that, similar circumstances. Left some scarring. Oh I feel so bad for that woman!

Could this be the reason I don't like poisonous snakes?
