This poor dude, clearly the snake completely ambushed him. I don't think he even saw it coming until he'd already been bitten.

A 5-foot-5-inch snake was coiled on the porch light — and pounced on Heywood’s face when he opened the screen door.

The sneaky snake attack — its teeth sank in right near the stunned guy’s left eye — was captured on Copeland’s doorbell camera and the footage is now going viral.


“I didn’t know what kind it was [and thought], ‘I have to get to the hospital,'” Heywood tells FOX 40.

Copeland said he watched in horror as his pal stumbled through the door, howling the F-word and clutching his face.



“I was in shock,” Copeland says. “That could’ve been any one of us.”

A quick trip to the ER revealed that the snake was not venomous.

“No stitches, thankfully, but they cleaned me up pretty good,” Heywood says. “I am on antibiotics.”

The snake was not so lucky.

Copeland’s wife started screaming along with Heywood, Copeland says. All the hollering attracted a neighbor, who came over armed with a hammer to pound the slithering critter to death.

At least one person in the neighborhood is competent enough to deal with something more dangerous than Girl Scouts selling cookies. In fact, Neighbor Dude is probably the only reason the folks at the hospital knew that it wasn't a venomous snake.

And the "victim" has zero situational awareness (he's not even looking towards the door he's opening, let alone at it), and his response is for shit... he backs off for a second, and then goes right back towards the thing that just attacked him. Honestly, he should have gotten bit again.

At least he was smart enough to get medical treatment, I guess.

ETA:
Copeland aims to avoid any future attacks by spraying his yard with sulfuric acid.

“I hear they don’t like that,” he says.
Good luck with that, you fucking idiot. Putting this whole passel of morons on the Front Page.

it was green, a garter snake, it probably got p there next ot the light at night because it was warm
I have mowed over three already this year and they were little. I hate it. I live near the Illinois River and so the garden snakes keep down the mice and rat population. I don't like any of them but Id rather deal with a snake than rats/mice.

hahaha sorry yall but I remember last winter a bat, yes a freaking bat, came to my door. It was in between my storm door and heavy door. I have a bat house in the tree outside and we see them all the time. It was the middle of winter and I saved the poor little critter. I prefer a bat to a rat.
