*UPDATE* Man dies after possible snake bite


Temple man killed from possible snakebite identified as Grant Thompson.  Thompson owned Fish Bowl Pet Express.  Ann Wyatt Little will have more on this story at 5 today.

Austin police are working to identify the man who died from a possible snake bite Tuesday. The 20-year-old was treated for cardiac arrest and found with puncture wounds but investigators say the medical examiner will have the ultimate say on how he died.

Around 9:45 Tuesday night Austin-Travis County EMS responded to a report of a man found in his car with a possible snake bite. It was parked in the Lowe's parking lot in the 13000 block of N IH 35. He was transported to St. David's Round Rock Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Stickers on the back of the man's car warn of venomous reptiles.

Animal Control officers responded to the scene. Patricia Fraga, a spokesperson for the city's Animal Control Services, says officers seized one bull frog, six tarantulas and one brown snake from a container. Fraga tells FOX 7 officers did not seize a venomous snake.
