This Dad Lived Every Parent's Nightmare When His 2-Year-Old Was Bitten By A Copperhead At Daycare

By Mark Pygas

We're guessing that the most terrifying part of parenting (just after dealing with all the baby vomit and having to wear a Babybjörn) is trusting other people with the care of your child. Babies and toddlers can get into all kinds of sh*t and they'll eat anything, so a disaster is bound to happen every now and then. And you can feel pretty helpless when surrendering your little demon angel to the clutches of daycare. As it turns out, all your nightmares could easily come true, so good luck relinquishing your little miracle anytime soon.

Michael Cook got a call from his daughter's day care center informing him that his two-year-old, Kiley, was bitten by a copperhead snake.

Daycare supervisors from Rainbows Promise Daycare in Granbury, Texas told WFAA that they always scan the playground for snakes, and they'd never had an incident like this in the entire eighteen years they'd been open.

Kiley's finger, hand, and arm swelled up and turned black— and she had to be sedated.
