  • Man Bitten By Rattlesnake At Texas Wal-Mart

    BROWNWOOD, Texas -- Police say a man was bitten by a rattlesnake while shopping for shoes in a Wal-Mart store in Texas.

    Douglas Hatchett of Brownwood was examining shoes on a rack when a rattlesnake concealed behind a shoebox bit him Monday. The snake fell to the floor, where Hatchett stomped it to death.

    Police, fire and emergency medical crews were called to the scene.


    The 31-year-old shopper and the dead snake were hustled to Brownwood Regional Medical Center. There, the snake was confirmed as a rattler, and Hatchett was treated and released.

    Wal-Mart officials say the matter's being investigated and they have no comment.

    Brownwood is about 120 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

        Hey, the snake just probably slipped in one night while they were doing re-stocking and the doors were open. But YIKES! Go to grab a pair of shoes and they grab ya back. I think I would have wet myself on that one. :Chatter

        Now some poor shmucks are probably gonna have rattle snake detail every night, where they have to search the shelves for critters. That would suck!

              This story is easily understandable. I live smack dab in the middle of the desert, I watch out for those daayum things when I walk out of my HOUSE.

                  You would think so , but maybe there was to much back ground noice or maybe he thought it was a kids toy. But you would think he would have heard those things.

                    Could of been sleeping in the shoe.
                    And when the dude pulled out the shoe it just struck from it's natural instincts.
                    Some good eating there.

                        I am wondering if this was not an act of deliberate malice on
                        someone's part. Some years ago a man dropped out of Synanon, a drug treatment program that morphed into a cult. They tried
                        to kill him by putting a rattlesnake in his mail box. He was bitten,
                        but got a shot of antivenom and recovered.
