1903 Goodland, Kansas " Five out of a bunch of 23 calves were bitten on the head by a large rattlesnake on the Ernest Grieger ranch, north of Goodland, last Thursday. The heads of the animals swelled to twice their natural size but none of them died. Mr. Grieger was in town that day and the calves were being herded by Lawrence Sater. The boy noticed that there was a commotion among the calves and went to find what the matter was. They had formed a semi circle, and with noses and tails straight out they would advance to the center and then jump back in a frightened manner. This was done several times, and when the herder came up he saw that a big rattler with ten rattles had been playing upon the heads and noses of the calves and had wounded five. At night when Grieger returned the heads of the bitten brutes looked like the biggest part of their body, and the poison had practically spent all its force. The calves had been allowed to run with the cows and when they would attempt to suck, their swollen lips prevented them from extracting any nourishment, and it was several days before they could eat or drink. It is a rather curious fact that the bite of a rattlesnake on the head cf an animal is rarely fatal, whereas a bite on the hind leg almost always produces death. This is the experience of those who know most about the effects of snake bites, but no definite explanation of the action of the poison of the rattlesnake injected into diffetent parts of the body is generally known. "
