(KIII) -- A Corpus Christi man is still recovering after he was bitten by a rattlesnake, even after the snake had already been beheaded.
It happened the weekend of May 27 at a residence near Lake Corpus Christi.
Jennifer Sutcliffe and her husband were doing weekend yard work when she spotted a four-foot rattlesnake. She said her husband quickly took his shovel and severed the snake's head, but moments later when he bent down to dispose of the snake, the snake's head bit him.
