Dieter Zorn, Snake Expert, Dies After Viper Bite During Presentation On Overcoming A Fear Of Snakes

Quote:
A German snake expert died after being bitten multiple times by a viper during a presentation aimed at helping people ease their fears of the scaly reptiles.

Dieter Zorn, a 53-year-old herpetologist, died Tuesday evening of a heart attack minutes after he was bitten by an Aspic viper, according to Germany's English-language newspaper The Local. Zorn was in southern France performing his "Reptile Show," which teaches people how to overcome their fears of snakes, when he was bitten several times.

Sort of like this typical

the idea of Death Panels
was silly.

I make it a point to kill the snake before it kills me. Except black ones. Always find them when I ain't expecting it. We used to have a big black one who got in under our lower cupboard in the winter. When you went for canned goods from there you opened the door and he would move to the back.
