Houston Anchor Bitten by Copperhead Snake

KTRK Anchor Art Rascon stepped outside of his house this morning in bare feet, he got quite a surprise. 

Rascom was bit by copperhead snake. "I was in my front yard, and I just went out to the car," Rascon says. "I was getting something out of the trunk, and I was bit."

The anchor says he was "jumping around, thinking, 'What the heck was that?'"

The copperhead had sunk its teeth into Rascon's left foot, just above his pinkie toe.

"It's just super painful," Art said. "I've never been bitten by a snake before."

The Anchor is off the air while he gets treatment.
