They *staged* it for their "reality" show.  Color me shocked.  Have they drank their own piss yet?

I'm actually surprised that they would stage things for this show.  If true, that quite disappointing.

Turtleman and Neal appear to be some of the most genuine and likeable people on TV.

Snakes are not "poisonous", they are "venomous," dammit.

a poisonous snake was released and then captured by Kentucky's "Turtleman,"

I didn't realize Mitch McConnell was a snake handler.

Try eating one. Maybe then it would be poisonous.

It sounds kind of like a cool idea to me.

One one Fark snake thread or another, someone asked if a venomous snake would be poisonous if it were eaten - and someone mentioned that moccasins could eat venomous snakes without harm.

"Hun," I said, "never heard that before."

Well, damned if it ain't so, and there's even YouTube to prove it.

Sounds like the government didn't get their bribe.

Maybe they should have released a mermaid instead.

The snake didn't have a pool to hiss in.

Yeah, maybe Ariel or one of those from the Pirates of the Carribbean movies...

King snakes do it all the time too. They'll eat a rattlesnake or water moccasin without suffering any ill effects from their venom.

Catching a snake in a swimming pool is a very simple matter, if it's not a farkin' giant anaconda.  1) Grab the long pole with dip net/leaf skimmer.  2) Scoop up snake, while it's swimming on the surface.  Then C) Dump snake out, elsewhere.

/a complete idiot could do it

Just bring in the snake-eating gorillas.

These shows are about all the same. This reality is just staging what may have happened in some reality, not that it's happening live.

Dirty Jobs. Now that was a reality show.

Considering its location, I blame this guy:

Well, I suppose that woudl really depend on the location of the pool.  There's a couple herds out there that could use a little thinning.
