Snake-handling preacher Cody Coots got scared when the 6-foot long rattler bit his right hand early Monday, says the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Just three months ago, his father, Jamie Coots, died within minutes of being bitten by a rattlesnake during a service at his Middlesboro church.



The loss was still fresh for his family and friends, and Cody Coots, who took over for his father, had just been bitten by an even bigger rattler.
