Another one bites the dust

Quote:Jamie Coots, a snake-handling Kentucky pastor who appeared on the National Geographic television reality show Snake Salvation, died Saturday after being bitten by a snake.

When an ambulance arrived at the church at 8:30 p.m., they were told Coots had gone home, the Middlesboro Police Department said in a news release. Contacted at his house, Coots refused medical treatment.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

Yup, handle venomous snakes for show and sooner or later someone forgets to adequately milk them first.

There are actually several tricks they use. Some sew the mouth shut, the snake starves to death but is good for show until then.
Some cool the snake. When at low temperatures, bites are far less likely.

Finally, most snakes are not aggressive unless you spook them.
Welcome to the dark side. Are you surprised we lied about having cookies?

Handling snakes for reality TV vs handling snakes for God. Whoops.
