SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - A South Florida man is recovering after a venomous snake bit him outside his house.
Here’s some advice if you come across a venomous snake:
“If you are bitten you want to get away from the animal as soon as possible. Don’t try and capture it; it’s already bitten someone. If you are able to safely get a picture of it, please do and that will assist the providers in selecting the correct anti-venom.”
Officials say more snake bites happen between April and October.
