FTVLive was the FIRST to tell you that KTRK (Houston) Anchor Art Rascon was in the hospital after being bitten by a copperhead snake. 

Rascon says he was bitten by the snake after he stepped outside in his bare feet. "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."

Rascon spent hours in the hospital as doctors needed to observe him and see how his body reacted to the bite. 

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

The Anchor was expected to be released from the hospital last night. 

Maybe the station should wait a bit before sending him back in the field to get a "bite" on a story ( see what I did there?).
