Well....See? People come from different places. You have a hard time with some of what I share, even though I see it in the BibleBendito -- I wouldn't know -- I don't eat snake . The venom in the sack is what will kill a person. Have you ever seen a snake being milked? Have seen that on T.V.
When poisonous snake bites a person, venom is released from a sack behind it's head and goes into the person -- it will start to immediately either kill or paralyze the victim.
Eating snake meat should be harmless. But I don't plan to eat any.
I come from a long line of hunters and trappers. We've always taken our meat from the forest...and we developed a strict rule way back in the sixteen hundreds....If you don't want to eat it, don't kill it. If you kill it, you WILL eat it. You condone the killing of snakes but are not willing to eat them....Offensive to me.... I hope this helps? I do not and will not judge you for your choice of course but I hope it opens up a bit of understanding. That's all I'll say about where I'm coming from.
