Toxic Mushrooms Spotted!!!!......[BC]
    #11290111 - 10/21/09 05:13 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Oct. 19th 2009 - BC Local News - Ladysmith Chronicle

The Town of Ladysmith is warning anyone who finds a brightly colour mushroom known as Fly agaric in their yard not to touch it.

“If they touch it and lick their fingers they can definitely get sick,” said Glen Britton, the parks supervisor.

The mushrooms were discovered late last week in a yard on Malone Road. They are bright autumnal colours like orange and red, with white dots on the cap. The Latin name is Amanita muscaria.

Britton said the town was notified about the mushrooms on Thursday by a man who spotted them while out walking.

“We get a lot of these types of calls and usually they’re false,” Britton said.

However, this time the call wasn’t false, he said.

Britton said the mushrooms are rare, especially in residential areas.

He said the mushrooms could kill a dog.

Since the Chronicle posted the mushroom story on its website Friday afternoon, it has received two letters about them. Both letters said the mushrooms are not called death caps, as originally reported. In fact, according to a letter from Doug Snead, death caps are amanita phalloides, which are not the mushrooms in the picture.

Nonetheless, Fly agaric is poisonous to people. Within one to four hours of ingesting the mushroom people can experience diarrhoea, vomiting and dryness in the mouth. Accelerated heart rate, mental confusion, nervousness, delirium, and hallucinations are also symptoms.

Britton said anyone who finds the mushrooms should call the town at 250-245-6448.

So that they can sell them.

I'm pretty sure you can't 'get sick' from licking your fingers after touching Amanita muscarias...hence why people eat a shitload of caps.

well, when they're not cooked or dried they are definately poisonous and can kill you...but u actually gotta physically eat wet mushrooms to get sick. its like ibotenic acid converts into muscimol when dried/heated or something the ibotenic acid is what will fuck you up correct me if im wrong.

you could most likely rub your hands all over a fresh amanita and lick your hands clean and wont feel any different. this is just some bad misinforming reporting.

Amanita muscaria wouldn't likely kill anything, unless a dog gobbled up a buttload of caps or something. Deer eat them, get fucked up, and go back and eat more. Then they lick up the pee of anyone who ate them.

Amanita pantherina
on the other hand, will get you high and may possibly kill you. It is still listed as deadly poisonous in some books, where A. muscaria usually is not.

panther caps are just more toxic...i've eaten panther caps plenty of times and im perfectly fine...they both have the same chemistry just panther caps are like 2-3 times stronger.

I've touched amanitas before, no problem. It's funny cuz Ladysmith is quite close to where I live.

I never said that eating panthers will kill you. I said it was still listed as deadly poisonous in many books, where fly agaric is not anymore; and may possibly kill you.

Eating large amounts of any poisonous mushroom may kill you though, including A. muscaria.

2-3x stronger means 2-3x more likely to kill you.

For what it's worth, a friend in Victoria, BC sent me photos of the city hall in that town that has a very large Brugmansia versicolor shrub growing right out in the open, in plain view of the local TV station (located across the street) who have only done one, very brief, story on it in which they, in both his opinion and mine, vastly understated the danger.
There is another Brugmansia shrub growing, again in plain sight, easily-accessible to anyone, in the main tourist area in the Inner Harbor.
Both of these shrubs are a good meter tall with several large fist-sized blossoms. There's been a rumor spread among the street people that City Hall sprays the shrubs with poison. Personally, I think that's due to one guy trying it and getting sick as shit off the normal chemicals in the plant.... I mean, it is a very close relative of Datura, so it stands to reason that the effects would be roughly similar.

This is hilarious, Damn ignorance, it's the route of the illegalising of all drugs. If we didn't have ignorant people who don't know better we wouldn't have idiots who take drugs and die. Like the fool who jumped a bridge on shrooms, if your gonna trip avoid heights durrhhh.

I'd take that further and say "If you're gonna trip, have a trip sitter you can trust, just in case."

Or if your going to trip, try not to bloody kill yourself- it gives trips in whatever form a bad name which is pretty unjustified in my oppinion and doesnt make things easier for the cause.
