According to the information, it was a highly toxic North American copperhead. A full bite can be deadly - but mostly healthy adults survived a bite, explained a spokesman for the fire brigade. A zoo in Saterland (Cloppenburg district) is now supposed to take the animal. Origin and owner were still unclear according to the information on Monday. The police are investigating.
