Hrm. I've never had a section on snakes in my "Absolute Worst Case Emergency Procedures Guide". Will need to add that. Right after the "Large Predator on Property" and right before the "Large Non-Predatory Animal on Property" sections, I think.
I'd like to see the legal argument they might use trying to justify why they couldn't have predicted this potentially happening and therefore shouldn't have to cover it."I don't do judgment. Just retrieval."
"The true triumph of reason is that it enables us to get along with those who do not possess it."

How's this for a bit of irony - the Walmart where this happened butts up against the Snake River. Go figure - maybe his claim will be that Walmart could have and therefore should have known that there were snakes in the snake river."Life is hard - it's really hard if you are stupid." - John WayneRetail Security Consultant / Expert Witness

There are poisonest (sp?) in Quebec.
We have something going on in Sherbooke, down near the US border. Someone is putting used syringes with needles in the pockets of clothing on display in some stores. Police confirm the DNA found on them shows that they come from the same person.I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.
