11-year-old child bitten by a snake
AN 11-year-old girl has been bitten by a snake on her hand.
Paramedics were called to a residence of Toolakea Beach Road where the child had reportedly been bitten by a "brown coloured" snake at 6.39pm.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said the girl was taken to Townsville Hospital in a stable condition, showing no signs of symptoms.
In a separate incident, a man was taken to Townsville Hospital in a stable condition after being bitten by dog.
Paramedics were called to a private address on Parakeet Court, Condon shortly before 1am.
The QAS spokesman said the 20-year-old man was playing with the dog at the time of the incident.
"It obviously didn't take a liking to what he was doing," the spokesman said.
He said the dog bit the man on the lip.
The man was taken to hospital in a stable condition with a cut to his lip.
