Two snake bites in two days

TWO people have been bitten by snakes in the Moreton Bay region over the last 48 hours.

A 40-year-old man was transported to Caboolture Hospital after he was bitten by a snake while mowing the lawn at his Oakey Flat Road home in Burpengary at 7.31am yesterday.

A 20-year-old female was bitten by a suspected brown snake at a Shayne Avenue residence in Deception Bay at 12.51pm today.

The woman was bitten on the hand but applied a bandage to stop the venom from spreading.

She was transported in a stable condition to Redcliffe Hospital.
