A Cedar Street Garter Snake was minding his own business sunning itself late Saturday afternoon when a Highlands resident decided to pick him up and manhandle it. The snake retaliated and bite him. Police, Fire, EMS & Animal Control were called to the scene.
The snake was detained in a cooler until it determined he was not venomous. The man was treated at the Monmouth Ocean Hospital Service Corporation and released.
