Jaime Coots was the star of the now canceled reality show SNAKE SALVATION on the National Geopgraphic Channel. He was killed while handling a rattle snake over the weekend.

The pastor, who's church handle snakes as a regular thing, believing God will protect them from harm, was bit over the weekend in Middlesboro, Kentucky. Apparently this is the 4th time he's been bit. 

He refused treatment after the bite and died shortly thereafter.

Here's video of one of his snake handling experiences.

Get this. After his father's death. His son says he will gladly continue the practice of handling snakes.
