PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. — Police in Broward County said a person was bitten by a venomous snake near their home last week.

Pembroke Pines police said in a Wednesday tweet that during the July Fourth holiday a water moccasin bit a resident in the Cobblestone community.

The snake was safely removed by police and the victim was treated with anti-venom.

Police want to warn the public that April to October is considered "snake bite season," so use caution when you are around tall grass or moving outdoor items.
