Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
You have to love a statement like: Minnesota DNR wildlife biologist Ed Quinn tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the reason for the rattlesnake strike is unknown.Yup. Its a mystery. Like he was mauled by a bear. Snakes bite because you (usually inadvertently) end up too close to them and they feel threatened. I'm all but certain the rattler wasn't chasing him down the trail.Since you are out and about Captain, why not head on down to Texas? I'm pretty sure I could rustle up a water mock or two for you at the local lake.
"Minnesota DNR wildlife biologist Ed Quinn tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the reason for the rattlesnake strike is unknown."Well gee, maybe it bit him because it's a rattlesnake? Is this some kind of philosophical question or something? Rattlesnakes will bite you if you're within striking distance and don't get away fast enough.They shouldn't be asking why the snake bit this guy, they should be asking why the guy didn't retreat from the snake when it started rattling in the first place. Rattlesnakes pretty much always do that before striking.
You guys only have two types of poisnous snakes! Come on down to North Florida, Cappy. We'll set you up with some rattlers and a few gators to boot.
Unless you disturb a rattler by accident you deserve to be bitten, period!!
