A New Jersey man received an unpleasant surprise after trying to save a snake.(from MSNBC.com)
On Thursday, around 6:30 p.m., the 24-year-old man was driving on Route 679 near West Stage Road in Tuckerton, when he spotted a rattlesnake crossing the road. Officials say that the man got out of his car to prevent the snake from being hit by oncoming vehicles.
The man then tried to pin the rattlesnake down with a stick — and the snake bit his hand.
Well, I guess it does need pointing out. To New Jerseyans, at least.
(Next time, remember the scorpion and frog.)
