Jackie Bibby was bitten twice this year. The second time in September and had to have his leg amputated. I do not understand
the desire to handle rattlesnakes or any other venomous reptile.
I never kill venomous snakes but I also do not get closer than 5 ft and do not pick them up.

You would have to think, sooner or later your luck is going to run out.

I wonder if he will continue to handle them, probably will.

Little safer with a fake leg. Half the danger has been eliminated

Now he can replace that leg with a snake stick.

In 1977 I was in an outdoor club and Ol' boy did a snake-show at my High School. During the show he was bit. Nearly lost his life because he was allergic to the venom and the serum is derivitive of the venom. Double dose. He no longer does snake shows.

I kill every venomous snake I see. Killed 2 Copperheads yesterday while dozing brush on the place. Would probably shoot someone who was playing with one and plead the fifth.

It is actually his 13th bite, the only reason this has made me stop and think. His friends are reaching out to raise money to help with medical bills. I enjoy his shows and watching him on TV, but the responsible part of me can not understand why he does not have medical insurance. I personally would rather give my money to help a family out in a medical situation that was not self imposed. Dont even flame me as I am talking out loud not being judgemental

No flames as you are correct. Time for him to pay the piper.

No poisonous snake gets a free pass from me. I don't worry too much about copperheads, but I truly hate rattlers and cottonmouths.

I went to a big gun show in Houston some years ago and some guy in the Rattlesnake Show got zipped up into a sleeping bag with maybe 10 rattlers. Gimme a break! No way I'd do that.

Could be because no one would sell him a policy...ya think?

I have seen Jackie do a few snake demos in person. He seems like a good guy but if you play with fire pretty soon you are going to get burned. Pretty sure he knew that and now he knows more than ever before just how dangerous those snakes can be. I bet he dont give up his snake handling though.

I know Jackie and have chatted with him a couple times about his snake handling. He's definately a character, but for the most part he's in it for the money. Really surprised he lost his leg. Would have thought he'd built up a level of immunity by now.
