Wood County Woman Bitten By Copperhead

A warning, Saturday for East Texans after a local woman is bitten by a copperhead.  Wood County authorities say a woman was at her Holly Lake Ranch home when she was bit by the 21/2 foot snake in the ankle and then again in the hand.  The snake was killed by her husband and confirmed to be a copperhead.  The woman was taken to a local hospital and is said to be in good condition.  Authorities say snakes are more active this time of year because of the warmer temperatures.
