He attacked across this region there there's been a spike in the number of venomous snake bites that are happening aid all the way up into cancer understand that there has been an increase there and spent a lot of that is attributable to the warm winter that we just finished.

It is real release dominant defenseman on the part of the concern trader at BJP here down here in this. I had to ride back to vote the country you're looking primarily a continent. Copper had bites you know I'd step toward the Davis mountains that's primarily what this sucker but you know again the intent is you've got your share of bites as well and by eight kid biting snakes. Just looking at a list of copper head you've got him in camp assistant at the bit saga which is a little rattlesnakes loose and timber rattlesnakes all three of those live in Kansas. Okay well by late brother in law lived in New Mexico and out in the country and and he had one time. When they first moved out there he would shoot today again the great big stakes him on the property shooter but the Indians in the neighbors had no Mike. That's bad medicine.

Four point Serbian doctors were treating him say it and it's a miracle he's doing as well as he is just what has ballooned up but but illusionist or part of it got to a hospital very quick. Yep get there quick treatment you should should be okay and this right. Yeah absolutely and don't trust it I don't think that if you ever rattlesnake kit at home with the bulls suction cup.
