On Aug. 11, the younger Cook was almost finished cutting the grass at his familys rented house when he heard a loud rattling sound. http://www.nba.com/2016/news/07/19/magic-jodie-meeks-foot-surgery.ap/ First he thought it was the buzzing of cicadas. Then, he thought the push mower might be making the noise so he shut it off. Thats when he saw the snake coiled about 3 feet from his right foot. He estimated it was about 5 feet long and had a girth the size of a soda can. After briefly freezing in fear, Cook said he moved his left foot back and stepped on a stick. The noise apparently provoked the snake, which struck his ankle.
