Man bitten by Copperhead inside Arkansas Walmart

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. — An Arkansas man was rushed to the hospital after he was bitten by a Copperhead inside a Walmart store.

According to THV11, the incident happened in Jacksonville, Arkansas, just northeast of Little Rock.

Animal Control officials said the snake was de-fanged, which indicates it could be someone’s pet. The snake’s front two fangs were removed, but the venomous glands were not.

It’s unclear how the snake made it’s way into the Walmart store.
