    Thats who I thought it was, especially talking about adders, no doubt the RH previously mentioned will be getting on his soapbox again.

    All the best with the recovery.

    I was chatting to my wife who had the TV on in the background and John's (aka the Turnip) picture came on the screen as part of a news bulletin. Because she was chatting to me she did not hear the spiel.

    Must be a slow news day. Presumably by the 6pm bulletins it will have escalated to the point where he is at death's door. But the 6:30 manufactured pretend news John will be being interviewed having been resurrected from the dead, claiming it was only a minor flesh wound ... but the pull through will be pointing out that that was what the Black Night said in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.....

    haha no alledged about it, his name is published in the news story.

    If only he'd disconnected the electricity to his house he'd be safe =(

    I 'd like to hear the story from the 'horses mouth'. Not to criticise but as further learning about how these bites can occur.
    An honest account of what was being done at the time, was there distraction, complacency etc.

    Glad to hear your ok and live to tell the tale.

    He had a big smile on his face on the TV news, showing the finger that was bitten.

    Its a shame that there is such hype over it, unfortunatly groups like RSPCA love to get hold of this to push for the banning of certain animals.
     
  15. He is fine and happy, no antivenom needed and no hallucinating. It was just a baby that got him.

    As long as it isn't NSW.

    Why does stuff like this have to reach the media? Disgraceful.
