GOLDEN, Colo. - A Colorado man died Saturday after he was bitten by a rattlesnake during a hike in the Denver metro. Daniel Hohs, 31, was hiking in Mount Galbraith Park, just 1 mile northwest of downtown Golden when he encountered the snake. He survived long enough to make it to the hospital but succumbed to his injuries shortly after arriving. Hikers at Mount Galbraith sister station KCNC later spoke with said they had either seen rattlesnakes themselves or knew someone who had. There are signs posted on the trail warning hikers of the presence of rattlesnakes. Colorado Parks and

Comments:
Most people can survive the bite if attended to quickly. He was not so lucky.

Omg. I have a son that lives out there...love´s the outdoors.. hike 3 times today.. a bit naive to snakes/bites. But, what I would say, in town, with cell phone.. best thing would be to call 911.. and elevate leg. The poison circulated too much by walking ...too young to die .

One of our dogs, a Mastiff mix, had a snake pinned down in the yard a few nights ago. Got the 20 gauge, shot one in the air to scare the doggy off and snake no more. Well the FedEx guy had to put it in the burn pit for me the next day I have a new favorite dog haha. No rattlers but rat snakes get pretty big.

So sorry for this hiker and his family. I´m scared of snakes but have never even seen a snake in the wild in my life. At least where I live in Illinois we have no venomous snakes. One of the few pluses of living here today.

One nit pick with the headline writer´s who must think of themselves as "professional" writers...Fatal things kill.

Maybe "Hiker´s suffers a fatal snake bite" or "Rattlesnake bite proves fatal for hiker?"
So many times poor grammar changes the entire story and it´s happening more and more.

A friend of mine moved to Colorado last year from Florida. First week he was there he and his wife decided to take a hike along with their dog. The dog stuck it´s nose under a rock and was bit by a rattler on the snout killing it almost instantly.

Sorry to hear this. I wonder if he was fooling around with the snake. Seems like a lot of folks want to poke, prod and irritate snakes.

Extremely unusual to die from a snakebite in the USA. I would imagine that he was unlucky enough to be especially allergic to the venom.

As the article pointed out, about half of snake bites have no venom injected, in a tiny amount.

I have one friend who was bitten, while foolishly handling a rattler. He spent 3 day in the hospital, but got over it with no permanent disability.

The recommendations in the article say if you are bitten by a snake to remain calm. Show me anyone who would remain calm after having been bitten by a rattlesnake. If I ever hike in Colorado I´ll put my pet mongoose on a leash.

There are 77 species of rattlesnakes in the Americas. I had never heard of the diminutive Midget Faded rattlesnake. The Prairie rattlesnake is not known to possess a strong venom. At venomousreptiles.org we find the following:

The venom of the Midget Faded Rattlesnake is composed of a much higher neurotoxin than one would assume. This species carries the presence of a phospholipase A2-based B-neurotoxin (concolor toxin) and several myotoxins (Mackessy et al. 2003) which makes concolor venoms highly toxic. In fact concolor is the most toxic out of the (Western Rattlesnake clade, Crotalus oreganus).

Interesting. Many years ago American pit vipers were all thought to have hemotoxic venoms. Nowadays herpetologists have recognized that some species of rattlesnake have neurotoxins in the mix that would, if not treated in time, paralyze the central nervous system of the bite victim and shut off his breathing. Some of the other rattlesnake species with appreciable neurotoxins in their venoms are the Eastern Diamondback (the largest rattlesnake of them all, growing to 8´6" and twenty pounds), the Mojave green rattlesnake, the tiger rattlesnake and the Southern Pacific rattlesnake. There are likely some others in this group.

Some people are allergic to venom, whether hornet or snake; others just get a bad bite and don´t get it treated in time. Rarely, the bite is fatal even with antivenom and medical attention.

Get a grip, cowboys. I live with these things till the temp reaches 60 degrees at night; then I´m pretty safe unless I stick my hand under a rock or something.
I also live with illegal aliens, regardless of outdoor temperature.

A pair of snake boots might be wise in snake country. Maybe not as trendy as hiking boots which don´t protect the calves but provide much greater protection. You still have to be careful where you stick your hands while poking around rocks and such.

In any given year there are only two or three deaths by snake bite. Two causes are anaphylactic shock and heart attack out of fear or running for help.

As stated by #8 half of the bites don´t even inject venom. (I´ve read less than a fourth inject poison.) If there is a way to retreat, a rattler rarely attacks but runs. Cotton mouths on the other hand will come after you if you are swimming in their pool.

The fear of snakes is overblown but is totally understandable. They (even rattlers, water moccasins and copperheads) help to balance out the growth of many pests such as rats, rabbits, gophers and others. The king snakes control the rattler population.

I find two or three or more rattlers and copperheads around my place every year. Most I never kill if they are not in my shop. I have two huge King snakes that keep them in control.

My dogs are farm dogs and hate rattlers. They have all been bitten. They come home their heads looking like a basketball. I feed them all the bacon grease or raw bacon they want. Haven´t lost one out of twenty or so that have been bitten.

My neighbor spent several hundred bucks having her two dogs treated. The next time I told her about the bacon. One day they were out chasing around. Two days no signs of the aftermath.

Nature has a way of keeping things in balance, but there are areas that are truly overrun.

#18. Probably not an approved remedy by a vet, but it has been used by me and many others in my close community and friends and family for years.

Read about it on the internet you gotta be stupid with such a remedy. Funny! I lived forty miles from a vet. (got one closer now) After chasing the dog for an hour and loading him up to get him to the vet, he should be dead. Call him to a batch of bacon and in ten minutes he´s laying about happy as a lark thinking "i´ll do this again. All that bacon was great!"

Don´t try this if you have a doubt. I´m sure there are times that it won´t work, but I´ve had well over twenty dogs who were snake bite victims and have never lost one. I believe in Vets and their expertise, but I´d have to sell ten horses and four cows to pay for all the "should have gones."

It still remains an old wive´s tale, so take it for what it´s worth.

Instead of a rattlesnake bite it might have been a libtard demonrat bite. They´re more poisonous and carry almost instant death venom.

In the "Piney Woods" of Deep East Tejas we´ve got Copper Heads in every wood pile, Cotton Mouths in every pond and Coral Snakes in between. The dogs get bit all the time. Sometimes they go out and find a snake just to get some bacon. Haven´t lost one yet but old "Rosie" our beloved Basset is very near Puppy Heaven after 18 years as head of Ranch Security.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele, authors of the new book When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir, are self-described “prison abolitionists.” And they hope their book will inspire readers to consider a society where jails aren’t necessary. “I would like us to use our collective imagination to begin to imagine a world without prisons,” Bandele told Colorlines editorial director Akiba Solomon earlier this week during a conversation hosted by The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and The Strand Bookstore. “There are places on this planet where prisons don’t exist.
