    Ky. Snakes Seized As Owner Loses Fingers.

    This guy could be a neighbor. Would you be one to administer first aid following a fatal snake attack?
    This house was a virtual reptile zoo.

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky man wasn't around when officers seized reptiles from his home. That's because he was at a hospital having fingers amputated after a snakebite, his wife says.

    The state Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources seized seven rattlesnakes, a gaboon viper, a king cobra, an iguana, two monitor lizards, two alligators, a boa constrictor and a python.

    The 36-year-old Campbellsville man faces 15 counts of transporting wildlife into Kentucky without a transportation permit and 10 counts of possessing inherently dangerous animals.

    I love living here!
    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

    If he dipped them in mooshine after the bite, he would still have fingers. or maybe not.

    At Berkeley I had a professor who was a herpetologist. He said you wouldn't believe how many exotic animals are smuggled into the US to satisfy the appetites of rich mofos to have something different. He said he was visiting Texas once (UT I think) and he overheard someone mentioning that he was going to dispose of an animal, so he asked what it was, and it was some exotic turtle that someone tried to smuggle in. My prof said he would take it, so he stuffed it into his briefcase and carried it back on the plane. He said whenever an exotic reptile was confiscated at SFO, they would give it to him, so he had some cool exotic stuff.

    The folks who get me are the ones who release the exotics into the wild when they get tired of them or can't handle them anymore.
