A copperhead snake bit an adult male as he came shore after canoeing in Lake Needwood in Derwood.

According to a tweet from MCFRSPIO Pete Piringer, the man was able to recognize the snake as a copperhead. Piringer also states that the bite marks were indicative of a venomous snake.

The man is in good condition, and don’t worry…bites from venemous snakes are very rare in our area
