Snake Bite in the UK

Recommended Posts

Guest Mallam

No one has ever died from a snake bite in the UK, the bite of the adder is akin to a bee sting.

Loads more people die of wasp and bees stings though....Since records began in 1876 there have only been 14 reported deaths as a result of probable adder bites.

Last reported death from an adder bite in the UK was 1975, about 100 people a year get bitten so chances of dying are pretty slim.

"The problem with neo conservative capitalism and it's insatiable greed for more wealth and disparity amongst the populace,is that it ended up being the catalyst for the great depression and modern recession"

You're more likely to die from being hit in the head by a meteorite than from an Adder bite.

I think you're right there mate - if you got hit in the head with a meteorite, your chances of dying would be pretty high!

For all those worried about the creapy crawlies in Oz, watch your feet

If you are worried about the creepy crawlies in OZ, check out an organisation called Working with Wildlife. Not only do they have all the information on snakes and their behaviour when they come into contact with people but you can also download free snake bit first aid sheets.http://www.workingwithwildlife.com.au/index.php
