    Beheaded rattlesnake sends man to hospital

    Rural Washington man thinks he’s killed the reptile and is then bitten by it


    PROSSER, Wash. - Turns out, even beheaded rattlesnakes can be dangerous.
    That’s what 53-year-old Danny Anderson learned as he was feeding his horses Monday night, when a 5-foot rattler slithered onto his central Washington property, about 50 miles southeast of Yakima.

    ......

    “When I reached down to pick up the head, it raised around and did a backflip almost, and bit my finger,” Anderson said. “I had to shake my hand real hard to get it to let loose.”

    "when I reached down to pick up the head..."

    I'm wondering why he wanted to pick up the head of a rattlesnake.

    You have to be careful. Bees can still sting you after they're dead, too.
