Billy Glide Dies From Rattlesnake Bite

Apparently he was helping a friend move and the friend had a pet rattle snake.  Billy got bit and chose NOT to go to the hospital, most likely because the snake was not legally owned and he didnt want to get his friend into trouble.

He went to sleep and never woke up.

Billy was well liked in the industry.

Our condolences to his friends and family

    Are you serious? Is this a joke? Why wouldn’t he go to the hospital? Why didn’t his friends force him to go? Why didn’t they call 911 to come get him?

    How saw he placed consequential risks to friend above his need for medical treatment. Also sad that snake owner didn’t consider or know benefits of legal snake ownership, like local hospital /vet cooperative agreements to maintain fresh antivenin related to known quantities and species.

    Billy Glide was a great performer and he will be missed. I don’t know if we will ever see a man with such girth ever again.

    It’s sad that something like a snake bite could take down such a young person. I wouldn’t be surprised if Billy also didn’t want to go to the hospital to incur the medical bills that would indeed come with it. Type Snake Bite Hospital Bill in google and you’ll see that some crazy hospitals charge 5 figures for the antidote.

    More than anything this shows me that our healthcare system is more for profit then anything else. Sure Billy’s Friend probably would have gotten a ticket, but I believe there is more to this story. I truly believe Billy didn’t go because of the financial ramifications.
