The first day we arrived at our Santa Barbara Rancho Oso Camp, we heard about the little five year old boy who got bit by a Rattlesnake waiting for the bus. His mom was steps away on the phone. We are about a half an hour up the mountain from Santa Barbara and it got me thinking: What would we do if we were in this scenario? I have no idea how to handle a lethal snake bite. First thing you should have in rattlesnake country is a snake bite kit. One of the methods suggested below if you cannot reach help is for another person to suck the venom out with their mouth and spit it out. This is ONLY recommended if help is too far away. You won’t have to do this if you have a snake bite kit. Here are the different steps to manage a deadly snake bite courtesy Trails.com:
