Woman with big exotic pet collection dies of snake bite

CINCINNATI -- Zookeepers helped police search for venomous and exotic pets in a house where a woman was fatally bitten by a viper.

Alexandria Hall, 44, was bitten in her home Monday and died Saturday at University Hospital, police and a nursing supervisor said.

Neighbors knew she had pets, including rabbits and birds, but were unaware of her collection of at least nine poisonous snakes and more than one dozen other snakes, lizards and alligators until police went to the suburban North College Hill house.

Police believe an urutu pit viper bit the woman on Monday, and neighbors said she drove herself to Mercy Fairfield Hospital. She was transferred to University Hospital, where she remained in critical condition until her death Saturday evening.

"We have no idea how she made it to the hospital in the first place," said North College Hill police Sgt. Robert Kidd.

After police broke down the woman's front door, three reptile specialists from Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens entered and searched.

An ambulance waited outside the house in case a venomous snake attacked.

"We're going into an environment we're not familiar with, and we don't know where these animals are," said Winston Card, a zoo conservation program manager.

They found more than a half-dozen large lizards running around an upstairs bedroom. The venomous snakes were in secure plastic cases throughout the house, police and zoo officials said, and non-venomous animals were found under boxes and piles of clothes.

I wonder what she was trying to do with the poor snake (remember what the 2 gay guys did with the gerbil). :D
