No Peace, Anywhere?

Woman Bitten By Poisonous Snake Hiding In Toilet

No one knows how the snake got in the toilet, or where it went after that.

It's not all that unusual to hear of a snake in plumbing, it's happened before. Usually it is an escaped pet, however, not a poisonous snake. I think the woman will be moving soon. Very soon.

I wonder how they know it was a water moccasin? Most people don't have a clue what kind of snake they are looking at and nine times out of ten the news has the wrong identification of snakes they show. The picture of her thigh doesn't look like anything happened, a poisonous snake bite usually causes some serious damage or a least discoloration. How long ago did it happen? The picture of the guy with the shotgun looks a little over the top - he's gonna shoot up his house trying to kill it? I don't know but I think a little exaggeration may be taking place here.
