You can almost see the revulsion as Kevin squeals and squirms about those awful, icky snakes. "They could kill you," he yelps. Well, probably not.
A late 1950s study estimated that 45,000 snakebites occur each year in the UnitedBut facts won't stop our Kev. At least, they haven't in the past. This is just another excuse for him to show off his ignorance and spotlight his contempt. It's a good thing that he doesn't draw a government paycheck for sitting on his backside and writing all his anti-government, anti-conservationist tripe. [insert knowing wink here]
States. Despite this large number, only 7,000 to 8,000 of those snakebites are actually caused by venomous snakes, resulting in an average of 10 deaths. This puts the chance of survival at roughly 499 out of 500. The majority of bites in the United States occur in the southwestern part of the country, in part because rattlesnake populations in the eastern states are much lower.
If he wants to stop the senseless deaths in America I have a suggestion. I'll bet he won't take it. He likes his metaphors to be steely.
