When I saw it, 1.  I didn't know HOW to check it, and still not sure, and 2.  I had a friend my semester at Averett College that fell into a nest of coperheads (I beleive), and was in the hospital for a while b/c of it.
Weather it is a true story or not, I still wanted there ot be that worning out there that just b/c it's getting cold and winter is appraching doesn't mean we're absolutely safe from a lot of the things that are "hibernating" this season, snakes in particular.
I'm sorry it's just "urban legond", but I'd rather have it be a false story and people be cautious than to have it be ture and see something happen that I could have possibly prevented.
Personally, I feel EXTREMELY guilty if even the SMALEST thing happenes that I can/could ahve prevented/warned about.

Haf I alle in myn Inglis layd,
In symple speechs as I couthe,
That is lightest in manne's mouthe.
Alle for the luf of symple men,
That strange Inglis cannot ken."
