Bites do happen, but 99% of people bitten are messing with the snake when bitten. I like snakes, but I don't mess with hot snakes.


99%? Really? Nope gonna call bull on that. I guess you didn't see my post yesterday of the girl bitten on the finger by a copperhead...got it while weeding her flower garden out. Never saw the snake til after it struck her. She's one of 5 local people I know that have been bitten by copperheads in the past year...none of which were messing with the snakes. In fact, two were walking and just stepped near (not on) the snakes that got them and one was moving wood from his wood pile when he got bit. One was moving an old dog house of his and got it on the hand. So that's 5 I know of that have been bitten and not messing with the snakes prior to being bitten...100% unaware of a snake being anywhere close to them.


Your right, 99% was meant to say a preponderance of bites.

75-80% worldwide and 85-90% in the U.S. are attributed to harassment or attempted capture of said snake.

Maybe folks living in your neck of the woods taste better?

What... I grew up in a state with tons snakes and never gave it much thought. This whole snake thing got me thinking that you might want to just calm down and be careful...

If you guys can't handle it... Stay out of the woods... \:\)
