What Happens When a Rattlesnake Bites....

This actually occurred in California but Rattlesnakes can be found throughout the United States. They are NOT a friend of man.
They kill a lot of animals that man eats.
This of course increases the price of meat, lamb, chicken, etc. at the grocery store.
You just keep telling yourself animals have rights and keep paying those higher prices for food!
I just shot one off my front porch this morning.

Wow, keep shooting! I shoot rattlesnakes a lot, living in Arizona. Glad I've never gotten bitten.

Never gotten bitten???? Never taken an english class either it seems. You guys are idiots for the comments you've made. "any animal other than dogs that aren't in the human food chain needs to be wiped out"? what. You obviously have no idea how an ecosystem works. Wow, pure ignorance.

My name is Steve Reaves. I work with rattlesnakes here in Arizona. Rattlesnakes are an important part of the ecosystem. Without them, rat populations skyrocket and diseases like Hantavirus and the Bubonic Plague are quickly spread to humans. Dead is dead, no matter whether it's from a snakebite or from disease. 6 people a year die in the US from snakebite. 11,000 die from food poisoning. 6 people a day die from head injuries sustained from falling in the shower.
My suggestion to you is that you stop being such a pussy, watch where you put your feet, and get a yearly colon cancer screen. All that meat you eat is more likely to kill you than any rattlesnake is.

P.S., I have to agree with you about political correctness. If I followed that philosophy, it would take all the joy out of being able to call you a sniveling little faggot.

Something tells that most of the closed-minded, idiotic statements are made by some of those tea-baggers we keep reading about. You "people" are stupid.

yeech, that snakebite looks awful! jeez.
Rattlers don't usually attack until you invade their territory, then they rattle so you can get out. so for future reference, just watch where you're going? and keep your ears open?
otherwise, insulting liberals on public forums isn't going to change anything, so why bother? my philosophy for when one is on a computer is: if you can't say it to somebody's face, don't say it with the shield of a computer.

As much as I hate PETA, this blog is almost as bad. I love eating meat as well. That doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with rattlesnakes. Every animal is important. I'm an animal loving meat-eater because that is our role in the ecosystem. Evolution will surely destroy the lesser thinkers like yourself.

The dude on 2/25/10 is so right. Why would you guys say every species except dogs and humans need to be killed? dummies WE WOULD DIE.

Here in Texas rattlesnakes have gotten lazy ,
They don't chase rats and mice they go for second
Graders in school as the child in Eastland TX found
Out. My rule of thumb is this if they stay away
From me I don't actively seek them out and
I live within 100 yards of several dens , buy if
They cross my path I politely shoot them in the
Head and take their rattles . I also believe the
Bible has something to say about serpents,
They shall bruise my heal and I shall bruise there
Head

The pictures do not represent what the bite does...they show a procedure called a fasciotomy, which is done to relieve the pressure if forearm muscles swell due to envenomation. You would expect the same from a crush injury.

Having said that, yes rattlesnake bites hurt and in some cases may be fatal. Most are just painful for a few days. Having being bitten on my right hand and on the right foot I will vouch for that. Snakes do, however, provide an important service in rodent control and shouldn't be destroyed unnecessarily.
Not really tasting like chicken, snakes are great after being marinated in tequila with a few limes. Try it, you'll like it!

Lol who ever made this article is a dump ass. I don't like PETA but this is so fucking stupid. Get a pair of balls and stop bitching like a little brat who thinks every thing that Is not cute and fluffy should die.

Guys, I think the author was being facetious...I'm sure he doesn't ACTUALLY think all those species should be exterminated...

PETA can suck my big hairy ass (if they had their way, you'd go to jail for stepping on an ant hill), but I won't kill a rattlesnake, unless it's going to adorn my dinner plate.

That being said, just watch your step. Rattlesnakes don't bite unless you invade their space, and even then they usually warn you by rattling. If you hear a loud rattling noise, run in the OPPOSITE direction. I promise you, the snake won't give chase - it just wants to be left alone! And if you're dumb enough to keep hanging around and/or annoying a rattlesnake, you DESERVE to get bit.

I agree that rattlesnakes are deadly and I do hunt them to but seriously they attack when disturbed and your not going to just get bit unless your messing with the snake, and they have rattles for a reason if you cant hear that you shouldn't be where they live

Oh and those bites were more than likely someone who's body doesnt go well with the venom because everyone is different some just are sore and some end up with that
