Mail carrier saves dog after its bitten by poisonous snake

Pets are family members and when one is hurt or sick it can feel devastating. But all animals are curious which means sometimes they get out or another animal gets curious about them and they get into a sticky situation. Which is what happened when one family's beagle mix, Ginger was bitten by a copperhead snake while they were at work.

Their mail carrier, Holle Prigmore was out delivering mail when she noticed the dog limping by the side of the road but it was when she went to grab a treat that she realized something was wrong. Prigmore told Fox5 Atlanta that she noticed something moving near the mailbox and when she got closer she could see it was a snake.

The postal worker took a photo of the snake and posted it to social media where the group members identified it as a copperhead. That's when Prigmore knew she had to act fast if she was going to save the dog.
