  • NC man shows Copperhead snake bites after leaving hospital. He's been bitten 7 times.

    Lenny Cook is used to dealing with creepy critters. He says he worked as an exterminator in the area for years, and was called upon to do away with many different animals. Thursday afternoon might have been one of Cook’s closest calls with creatures from the wild. He said he was laying down rat poison in his garage when the incident happened. He claims he was checking dresser drawers when he came across a group of copperheads mating. “As soon as I opened them [dresser drawers], bam, bam, bam - they start striking,” described Cook.
