Floral Park man bitten by pet rattler
Authorities say a man was bitten by a rattlesnake inside his Floral Park home Thursday.
The man had to be rushed to the Jacobi Medical Center.
The man kept other illegal and dangerous pets in his Oak Street home, according to authorities. Officials recovered a crocodile monitor, a 4-foot cobra, a baby eyelash viper, a bamboo viper and the nearly 4-foot albino diamondback rattlesnake from the house.
The reptiles are being brought to an out-of-state sanctuary.
