A nine-year-old girl is recovering in hospital after being bitten by a snake.

Tyler Butcher was walking with her family in the New Forest, Hampshire, on Friday when she was bitten by an 18-inch-long adder.
Her father, Kenny Butcher, called 999 and she was taken to the intensive care unit at Southampton General Hospital.

Mr Butcher said his daughter was in "absolute agony" as her leg went black as she suffered an allergic reaction to the bite.

He said that doctors decided to give her antivenom as the bruising got worse and she was transferred to a general ward.

Mr Butcher told Sky News: "We went up to the New Forest for a walk with some friends, we were literally walking back to the car when my daughter gave out a yelp.

"I thought she had stood on a nettle but when I looked down I saw the snake slithering away and saw the puncture marks on her foot.

"She literally lifted her leg off the the ground, standing on one leg, you can tell when your children are in pain and she was in absolute agony."

He said that he dialled 999 and she was taken by ambulance to hospital.

Praising the emergency services and the medical staff, he added: "They didn't mess around, they were absolutely first class."

The Adder is the only venomous snake native to the UK, I think...

Oddly, it's illegal to harm or kill them! Even if they bite your daughter :S

Yes you are right they are the only poisenous snake in UK but their bite is not as bad as some of the members on this forum
