Ky. Snakes Seized As Owner Loses Fingers.
This guy could be a neighbor. Would you be one to administer first aid following a fatal snake attack?
This house was a virtual reptile zoo.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky man wasn't around when officers seized reptiles from his home. That's because he was at a hospital having fingers amputated after a snakebite, his wife says.
The state Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources seized seven rattlesnakes, a gaboon viper, a king cobra, an iguana, two monitor lizards, two alligators, a boa constrictor and a python.
The 36-year-old Campbellsville man faces 15 counts of transporting wildlife into Kentucky without a transportation permit and 10 counts of possessing inherently dangerous animals.
