A 40-year-old landscaper is recovering after being bitten by a rattlesnake in Quail Creek on Sunday.
The man was cleaning yard debris in the 700 block of North Pebbles Ridge Drive when he was bitten on the right hand, said L.T. Pratt, Green Valley Fire District spokesman.
A GVFD crew took the man to Banner University Medical Center shortly before 4 p.m.
Pratt said the man is expected to have a long recovery time.
