fer de lanceBy Aaron Humes: Lucky Strike’s Gilbert Usher says he is giving up handling poisonous snakes for a living.

That is to be expected, after he landed in the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for the fourth time in several years this week to be treated for bites from the deadly reptiles.

This past Sunday, he unveiled a fer-de-lance or tommy-goff which he had kept for three years but never shown anyone.

And that will be the last time he does it for any venomous snake, he swears.

Usher will be released on Monday, but hospital officials say he is lucky to be alive because every time the anti-venom is administered it becomes less effective. Usher is grateful to the hospital for tending to him on short notice.
