So many factors go into snakebites in this day and age, but probably none contributes more than Alcohol. I would estimate that nearly 90% of hand bites I have treated have involved alcohol use. Another factor is the 7 "T's" of snakebite-Tatoos, Teeth, Tequilia, Trucks, Twenties, Teasing, and Testosterone! The funny part is that similar to the story, many of these victims never accept blame for their bite.
