Miguel Mota said he was walking his pit bull, Stone, in Bronx Park East Tuesday afternoon when the serpent struck.” This is a strange rarity according to a Bronx Zoo official: “There haven’t been rattlers in this area in about 100 years,” said Jennifer Pramuk, curator of herpetology at the nearby Bronx Zoo.” |NYDN|
