Kentucky Has Some Strange Laws – Snakes and Reptiles in Religious Services
Notwithstanding the oft reported handling of snakes in certain religious services, typically reported when one of the handlers suffers a bite and subsequently dies, doing so is actually illegal in Kentucky. Under KRS § 437.060, it provided that:
Any person who displays, handles or uses any kind of reptile in connection with any religious service or gathering shall be fined not less than fifty dollars ($50) nor more than one hundred dollars ($100).
