At the meeting of the Albury District Hospital Board on Monday evening Dr. L. S. Woods, Medical Superintendent, suggested that a serum for tiger snake bite be purchased. He explained that the serum had been thoroughly tested. It was a new remedy for bites by tiger snakes. He stated that 40 per cent of deaths caused by snake bite were attributable to the tiger species, which was the most deadly in these parts; 10 per cent of deaths could be attributed to brown snakes. The board decided to purchase sufficient serum, at a cost of £6, to treat one person. (That’s equivalent to 2018 $540) Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 – 1938) Fri 25 Dec 1931
