In Reply to: Pretty rotten of them to give his address. posted by MsTT on October 17, 2002 at 12:19:55:
That was very, very wrong of the press to expose Chad to the public. He isnt a criminal and has done nothing wrong(except getting nailed which dosent hurt anyone but himself). You usualy see addresses in the paper from people who have been indicted by the Grand Jury, not bitten by their pet! He is perfectly legal were he is and I too am disgusted by the press for such seemingly illegal activities. However, I know in several other articles regarding keepers being bitten were they also listed the address, as was the case with Tim Freid's bite write up. I wonder if this is something they can do when they feel like or if they have to have premission? I hope Chad looks into it!
As for his condition, after speaking with a good freind of his, it seems he is well on his way to recovery! Though I belive he did experince some neruological symtoms from the bite, they were reversed quickly with AV and besides alittle swelling around the bite site, he is fine. BTW, it was a D.jamesoni that nailed him I belive.
Welp, that all I know right now. Hopefully, when feeling up to it, Chad comes here and explains the senario first hand, rather then me giveing second hand information:-)
Wishing him the best!
:Has the concept of a reasonable right to privacy ever entered the minds of these reporters? I've known several people locally who have had their rare and expensive snake collections burglarized or have been harrassed because their address got into the hands of the wrong people. If I was Chad I'd sue. Reporting on the story is one thing, gratuitously printing his address is something else. There is just no reason to do that and it adds nothing to the story except to expose a private citizen to needless risk and harrassment.
:Anyhow here's to hoping he makes a full recovery.
:Annoyed at the press,
