    A handler was bitten by a diamondback rattlesnake during a snake presentation yesterday. He was taken to the hospital but was apparently stable enough to be moved yesterday evening. The zoo where it happened is named Kungsbyn and they hold mostly Swedish domestics and natives, as well as snakes, a few parrots and ring-tailed lemurs.
