Rattlesnake Roundup starts Saturday

March 22, 2013

Apparently, it's going to take more than a serious snake bite to keep Jackie Bibby away from the Big Spring Rattlesnake Roundup.

Bibby, who holds several world records for snake-handling, was loading rattlesnakes for transport to a show in Brownwood earlier this month when he was bitten in the stomach by one of the creatures.

He was rushed to Brownwood Regional Medical Center and received several injections of anti-venom. At one point, he was listed in critical condition in the hospital's intensive care unit, the Brownwood News reported.
