The Lewiston (Idaho) Tribune reports Mica Craig continues to recover from rattlesnake bite he received at a Wal-Mart store in eastern Washington state. Craig initially thought the object was a stick outside of the lawn and garden department. Then the "stick" bit him on the hand. KATU reports Craig was treated with six bags of anti-venom at a hospital in Lewiston, Idaho. The bite happened in Clarkson, Wash.

From your link:

Craig's Story

In the middle of Craig's pain, he stomped the snake to death. The 47-year-old is currently recovering. He feels well enough to do television interviews. The Standard-Examiner of Utah reports the man was at Wal-Mart May 11 when he reached down for what ended up being a 20-inch long brown rattlesnake. Craig said he was at the store looking for mulch to grow medical marijuana."

Maybe that's why he thought a rattlesnake was a "stick".

Reading the article, it says that one of the customers at a different location was bitten by a copperhead rattlesnake. Really????? Do journalists even research anything anymore? There is no such thing as a copperhead rattlesnake. Journalism at it's finest.
