Man dies from Rattlesnake bite in Penn

New postby mike » Mon Jul 20, 2015 10:04 am

At 39 old man died from a reaction to the rattlesnake bite he got at his camp. Apparently, he was sitting around a fire around mid-night when he somehow got bitten. Maybe the snake moved near the fire to get warm. Anyway, you can read about it here: http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2015/07/19/rattlesnake-bite-kills-man/#.VaysDR6mnrU.twitter

Yup. Lots of mice will mean lots of rattlesnakes.
