PUTNAM LAKE, N.Y. — We have a lot of suicide stories on D’D, but none that I recall were a suicide by snake. But some unanswered questions surrounding the death of a woman found dead in her home after succumbing to the poison from one of the most deadliest snakes in the world, has some close to the victim feeling she may have allowed herself to be bitten.

Aleta Stacey, 56, was a snake lover who kept 75 snakes in the home she shared with her boyfriend. One of these snakes was the extremely deadly Black Mamba, reportedly the fastest venomous snakes in the world that also delivers a bite with a mortality rate of 100% if not treated immediately with antivenom. Typically, a bite from one of these bastards means you have about 20 agonizing minutes to make sure your corpse is found wearing clean underwear.

On Tuesday, Stacey’s boyfriend found her dead in their bedroom. She had snake bites on her arm and the Black Mamba was loose from its enclosure that was usually secured with a padlock. But questions are being brought up by investigators and friends alike that lead some to believe that this wasn’t an unfortunate accident.

For one, Stacey was well-versed with snakes and would have never handled this particular one in a casual manner. There is also the fact that she did not attempt to call 911 or summon for help after being bit, and then there is this comment from one of Stacey’s friends made to reporters.

“She was an unhappy lady and a very nice lady, a very nice person,” one friend said, adding when asked if it’s possible her death was intentional, “It could’ve been.”

Out of the all of the snakes removed from the home, 56 of them were poisonous, including a friggin’ cobra. All of the snakes have been relocated to the Bronx Zoo.

    You can legally own these snakes?

    I would gladly share a house with a King Cobra before sharing a house with a Black Mamba. I didn’t even know it was legal to own a Black Mama out of a clinical situation in this country.

    I am not even sure why someone would want these poisonous snakes in their house except to “ooh and ahh” their friends during a drinking and pot smoking party.

    This “loose” snake probably cost their jurisdiction a lot of money and safety to catch the damned thing.

    Mess with the bull and get the horns, not much difference here.

    Never understood people’s fascination with reptiles other than using the mystique and stigma surrounding them to get attention, which (to me) blatantly displays other deficiencies in the psyche.

    I like snakes, but keeping an animal around that can kill you is just plain dumb. 

    Pit Bull lovers, take note.  ;-)

    If you are licensed, you can.  But from what I have read it is a very painful way to die.  I have a better plan.  If I am ever diagnosed with Alzheimer’s I am going to get some salt and vinegar potato chips, some pepsi, and a favorite CD, then sit in my car in the garage with the motor running and listen to the music and eat my chips and just wait.  No spine twisting, muscles spasming, minutes of living hell for me.  Noppers

    “In Africa, the saying goes ‘in the bush, an elephant can kill you, a leopard can kill you, and a black mamba can kill you. But only with the black mamba–and this has been true in africa since the dawn of time–is death sure.’ Hence its handle–‘death incarnate.'” Pretty cool, huh? “Its neurotoxic venom is one of nature’s most effective poisons, acting on the nervous system causing paralysis. The venom of a black mamba can kill a human being in four hours if, say, bitten on the ankle or the thumb. However, a bite to the face or torso can bring death from paralysis within 20 minutes.” Now you should listen to this, ’cause this concerns you. “The amount of venom that can be delivered from a single bite can be gargantuan.” You know I’ve always liked that word gargantuan? I so rarely have an opportunity to use it in a sentence. “If not treated quickly with anti-venom, ten to fifteen milligrams can be fatal to human beings. However, the black mamba can deliver as much as 100 to 400 milligrams of venom from a single bite.”

    I have a corn snake. I just got him because he’s a low-maintenance little buddy that I could keep in my dorm without too much trouble. But even though he’s only about two and a half feet long and his head is the size of my thumb, I always handle him with caution and respect. I’d never handle a deadly animal like a mamba unless I was a zookeeper or something, and even then I think I’d try really hard not to. :P

    Just keeping a black mamba as a pet ought to be considered as a sign that somebody is suicidal. Those things aren’t friendly and they don’t fuck around.

    I fucking hate snakes with a vengeance. I think my mom passed me this fear cause I remember when I was about 4 living in the Dominican R. & a lot of people in my house while I was playing outside. I saw someone saying that my mom saw a snake in the backyard & fainted.

    To all those that want my yard, if I ever find a snake, no matter what kind back there: IT’S YOURS!!!

    (In heavy Australian Steve Erwin accent) “Yes, this is the deadliest snake in the world, the Black Mamba! One bite by this beautiful creature, and you’re done for, mate! Watch as I handle this beautiful, but deadly creature! Isn’t this exciting? OH SHIT! That’s not good! Call bloody 911! *Spasm* *Spasm*”

    The real Steve Erwin didn’t die from a snakebite, though. He spent a lot of time in the sun and got too many rays.

    All I’m saying is, if the guys on the nature shows freak out when dealing with the Black mamba’s
     (they are experienced) then no ordinary citizen show have this snake in domestic environment.  If I was this lady’s neighbor I was have been pissed to find out she was keeping such a snake.

    what is wrong with our country that you can legally own these snakes?  that is like having a loaded 357 around that could magically come to life and escape whatever cage the owners deem is appropriate and slither into someone’s home or yard where they may be a child playing. ONE bite and your dead?  There is absolutely no justification for individuals owning a snake like this.

    To be fair, one bite from one APBT won’t kill you (unless the dog was rabid and you don’t get treatment, or unless you don’t get the bite treated if the dog was clean and you get MRSA or otherwise infected).  I’m not a “lover” of the breed, but I would take a pit puppy and keep it in my home any day over a freaking Mamba.

    No, they don’t, they have to call a specialty place where they do have it.  There’s a guy somewhere who extracts the venom and makes anti-venom for a whole lot of states and they’re always calling him for antivenom.

    …I know this because I watched that show on Animal Planet called “Fatal Attractions” and they profiled someone else who died of a Mamba bite.

    People who do this shit like to feel like they have power over something.  It’s a power trip and a bit of narcissism, too:  “Oh, it’s o.k. *I* can handle such a powerful creature!”  With that narcissism comes the usual attention-seeking bullshit with the “Oh, hey, look at me, I’m handling such a powerful creature, so I MUST be awesome!” type of shit.

    People like that need to realize that just because you handled it safely once doesn’t mean that the next time you do handle it something WON’T go wrong.  They don’t have “respect for life” as much as they think they do…because they don’t respect THEIR lives or their neighbors lives  enough to NOT create a situation where they could all die.  And THAT kind of quality (“selfish idiocy”, I call it) is also present in meth makers…assholes who don’t care if something goes wrong and their place blows up (or theirs and their neighbors’ place blows up because of what they did).
