Why would they kill the snake?? That's just mean. I understand being afraid that it could harm the boy but even so they should not have killed it.

if it's a copperhead i totaly understand them killing it. That's not something you want around a baby. I'm betting it didn't come from the bag though.

Man if that was a copperhead that kid is the luckiest person on the planet....I cant see it coming from the potatoes either....a little snake would get crushed by all that moving around. At least the kid is okay.

If that was a copperhead and he was one of US then he would be the luckiest. As he is a child and his parents/guardians are obviously not herp keepers, in fear of their son's life they are completely justified in that. Seriously if something almost killed your son and you don't want anywhere near you what would you do in the heat of the moment?

It seems to me that every snake is a copperhead when someone that doesnt know anything about snakes tries to describe it.

if it would have been a copperhead, chances are the kid would already have been bitten...
Even a cornsnake, when the kid bit on it, I am quite sure the snake bit back in defense.

Why does it only happen to others to find snakes in their purchases, would love to find a jaguar jcp in one of my grocery bags one of these days hahaha

Maybe the copperhead got desperate and survived on the potatoes? heh, just a hypothesis!
