Default 56-year-old man bitten by rattlesnake

From the Pensacola News Journal . . .

A 56-year-old man was transported by helicopter to a local hospital after he was bitten four times by a rattlesnake Wednesday evening.The man was bitten at a residence on Beach Haven Cove Drive, between Gulf Beach Highway and Bayou Grande, according to Robin Nowlin, a shift supervisor with Escambia County Emergency Medical Services.
The man was bitten twice on both hands, Nowlin said. Emergency responders arrived at the home and contacted LifeFlight, which transported the man to Baptist Hospital, where he arrived about 6:25 p.m.
The snake was killed, Nowlin said.

They showed a picture of the snake on the news last night. Looked like a Timber Rattler.

Heard from a friend that the news got the story wrong, and the snake was a moccasin and it bit the guy on one hand when he was working on a sprinkler system.

every year when i start gearing up for deer season, these storys come pouring out. i hope the man is ok. a moccasin will attack while a rattler will strike then back off. as far as billy the exterminator says, black widow spider bites are from 1 to 5 bites in one encounter. that scares me a little too. im on the bama side of the bridge and hunt close to home. tons of biting stingin things out in those woods. my barn is infested with widows. black, brown, white almost. its nuts
