To The Editor:

Your paper, dated July 16, 2014, ran an article on Page 4B concerning a death from copperhead bite. The article contained a major and misleading misprint. It stated that the venom of the cottonmouth is the least toxic of Missouri’s venomous snakes. Actually, it is the most toxic venom. The copperhead is the least toxic, although it belongs to the same genus (agkistrodon).
