Drudge is linking to a Smoking Gun story about a guy throwing a rattlesnake into a bar.
Its a bit erie for me because I sort of hijacked a thread over at The High Road on unusual hobbies to discuss the private ownership of venomous snakes. Seems there is a relativly lively private market in these things, and while some states require some licensing of them, others do not. That troubles me, and my belief that the rights to ownership of a snake is different from ownership of a firearm has caused some concern there.
Anyway, for more info I would recommend checking the thread out as well as these two snake sellers - Cobra Man and Exotics R Us.
For what its worth, this is what Exotics R Us is currently selling. Cobra Man has an even more impressive selection.
