From "This is True"
"I said, 'OK, man, you're being stupid, put it away'," says Jim Roban, 39. Matt George, 21, was showing off his new pet rattlesnake to friends at his Yacolt, Wash., home. George had taken the snake out of its cage to give it a kiss. "He said, 'It's OK, I do it all the time'." Maybe so, but this time the snake bit him firmly on the upper lip. When George dropped the snake, Roban killed it. "I thought his head was going to blow up, he was just swelling and swelling," Roban said. Doctors say George should survive. (Vancouver Columbian) ...Better get a second opinion on that from Dr. Darwin.
Personally i hope George doesn't get to own another animal at all.
