Venomous Snake Bites Pembroke Pines Man

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.
