The details are not known yet and for all we know he could have had a heart attack. I ****** hate the news. It really pisses me off. Tomorrow is the our second meeting with the Dangerous Animal Initiative and the media is clearly very aware of this.

Even if he died from a snake bite, this would be the first in years...how many people die of car accidents every day? No news there...

A "poisonous" snake bite? If they were his pets, I doubt he was eating them. What a joke. Just what we needed :/

"Chesterfield: You can't keep as a pet a “wild or exotic animal” such as a raccoon, monkey, lion, tarantula or venomous snake. Circuses, veterinary clinics and zoos are exempt under conditions such as proper zoning. Animals such as non-venomous snakes and ferrets can be kept as pets. No county permit is necessary."

This doesn't sound right. Tarantulas, really?

Hanovers is worse. But I think tarantulas is because some of the species are rather venomous. I get flare ups if I get bit by any of them.. then again I get flare ups from being bit by anything.

That's horrible. I'm kind of impressed he was 70 and a hots keeper! It sad enough that the man died, but for the media to make it about the venomous reptiles he kept and what's allowed in those counties is ridiculous...

I'm starting to learn a little more. He had cancer and it is rumored he had heart problems as well. At age 70, you never can tell what killed him. Local news said that two experienced hot keepers came and took the collection of hots. Wish I knew who there were to thank them. If you are a member here, but do not want to expose yourself, I can understand. But, I do want to say thank you for your work.
