Lost Hills Boy Recovering After Snake Bite

The three-year-old Lost Hills boy who was bitten on the finger by a rattlesnake is doing well at Kern Medical Center.

Kern County Fire Captain Tyler Townsend says ‘Jonathan’ was in his own backyard when he encountered the rattler Monday morning. He’s received six anti-venom shots and could go home soon, possibly Tuesday or Wednesday.
