Apparently Pastor Gregory James Coots of the snake handling, fundamentalist, "Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name" in Middlesboro, KY was among 10 people arrested by Kentucky Fish and Wildlife officers in an undercover sting.
Officers confiscated over 100 snakes including 42 copperheads, 11 timber rattlesnakes, three cottonmouth water moccasins, a western diamondback rattlesnake, two cobras and a puff adder. Oh, and an alligator.
My favorite quote was from Jim Harrison, director of the Kentucky Reptile Zoo in Slade, KY which took the confiscated reptiles into their care.
"You can purchase anything off the Internet except common sense," Harrison said. "A venomous snake isn't a pet. You don't play with it. If you do, you're an idiot."
You may ask yourself, how did I get here?
