Rattlesnake selfie lands man $150K doctor bill

SAN DIEGO -- A local man who was nearly killed while trying to take a selfie with a rattlesnake racked up a whopping $150,000 hospital bill.
Doctors depleted the anti-venom stash at two different hospitals to treat Todd Fassler, who as it turns out once had a pet rattlesnake of his own. He sent us video he says shows him setting his snake free.
Fassler said he had the rattlesnake for more than a year but let it go because he thinks animal services would appreciate it.

He was trying to take a selfie with a rattlesnake. What he ended up with was a trip to the hospital and a bill for a whopping $153,161.25. OUCH
