Bizarre: Man cuts rattlesnake's head, still gets bitten fatally

A Corpus Christi man has had more than two dozen doses of antivenom after he was bitten by a rattlesnake even after he had severed its head, according to a KIII-TV report.

Jennifer Sutcliffe and her husband were doing weekend yard work when she spotted a four-foot rattlesnake.

When he tried to dispose of the snake, the snake's head bit him, pumping all the venom it had into him, Sutcliffe said. "He had to rip it off". He had been treated with 26 doses of antivenin.

"Within two miles down the road, he was going through seizures, slipping out of conscious and couldn't see".

"Some people are saying we deserve it, it's karma", Ms Sutcliffe said.

"The head end of a cut-up rattlesnake can continue to function, including the venom glands, for a long time afterward", anti-venom doctor Leslie Boyer told Gizmodo.

The bite came just a week after a kayaker in SC was hospitalized after a rattlesnake attacked him after falling from a tree.

Trauma surgeon michael Halpert said that neither sucking the venom out yourself nor using a home remedy will help deal with the bite.

At the hospital, Jennifer was told her husband was going into septic shock, had internal bleeding and that his blood pressure was consistently "bottoming out".

He's now recovering from some lasting effects to his kidney function.

Between 6,000 and 8,000 people are bitten by snakes in the United States each year, with 10-12 of those people dying. Experts advise that it's far better to retreat indoors and call more experienced handlers from animal-control, the local police or the fire department to safely remove the snake.

That's when the dead rattlesnake's severed head bit him. And naturally, they become aggressive in the throes of death, when they perceive the situation as a last-ditch opportunity to survive.

"The head actually turned around and grabbed onto his hand".
