PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A western Pennsylvania man is hospitalized after being bitten by a snake during an ATV riding trip with his friends.

Authorities say 39-year-old Chad Heasley had gone into a heavily wooded area to ride ATVs early Thursday when his vehicle got stuck in the mud. Police say Heasley was bitten by a snake when he went to get some rocks to help elevate his tires.

Emergency personnel couldn't immediately find Heasley because of his location in the woods. But a Medivac pilot eventually led crews to Heasley and he was transported by helicopter to a hospital. His condition wasn't immediately known.

Parker dam seems to have a lot of rattle snake incidents....at least relatively speaking, there seem to be a few encounters each year.

Twin Grove has copperheads and timber rattlers near the creek. It's a common occurance there.

Ya we used to trailride back there quite a bit...only ever seen one or two rattlers back there but the copperheads were thick, you really had to watch...thankfully our horses were seasoned trail horses and could see them and smell them. I was always so grateful to our horses who protected us so well, they would always stop out of the blue...and usually it didn't take long to see why, either a copperhead slithering across the trail or lying along side it in every instance. I hate them. Rattlers in my opinion are less scarey because at least they warn you.

blink One of the reasons I love "glamping"; nature too often gets in the way of enjoying the outdoors! haha
