Texas man bitten by severed rattlesnake head almost dies

The man beheaded it with a shovel but he soon found out how dangerous a dead snake can

A Corpus Christi man is recovering after he was bitten by a rattlesnake, even after the snake had already been beheaded.

Jennifer Sutcliffe told local station KIII-TV that her husband was working in the garden on May 27 when he saw the four-foot rattlesnake and decapitated it. "He had to rip it off".

That's when the dead rattlesnake's severed head bit him.

The man was transported via helicopter to a hospital, where doctors said there was a chance he wouldn't make it. The trauma surgeon who treated the man told KIII that, in a normal snakebite, a person might receive 2-4 doses of anti-venom; in the case of this man, it took 26 rounds. When he tried to toss the snake in the garbage, the severed head bit him, according to his wife.

A man's encounter with a rattlesnake the weekend of May 27 nearly ended his life. But after driving for two miles, she said her husband began to lose consciousness, lost his vision and started to have mini seizures.

It turns out snakes can still attack even an hour after they've been beheaded.

Sutcliffe's husband is now in stable condition, but his kidney function is still weak. After a 2014 incident in China, biologists affirmed that removing the head of a venomous snake doesn't instantly eliminate the threat it poses.

He beheaded it with a shovel, but he soon found out how unsafe a dead snake can be.

Texas is home to at least six rattlesnake species.

Halpert warned people not to suck the venom out themselves.

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