Let this be a warning to you!
A man was bitten by the decapitated head of a rattlesnake on his property near Prosser.
Fifty-three-year-old Danny Anderson and his son saw the five-foot snake Monday evening while feeding horses. They pinned it with a pipe and cut off its head with a shovel.
When Anderson reached down to pick it up he says the snake head twisted around and bit his index finger.
Maybe he should have waited a few minutes to make sure all biological activity, including possible reflex action, had ceased. And just why the hell did he feel the need to pick up the business end of the snake in the first place?
Yes, I'm tagging this as 'funny.' I have a nasty sense of humor.
