An urgent warning has been issued to dog owners in Essex after a greyhound was bitten by a snake.
The incident – believed to involve an adder – happened in long grass at Brook Country Park on the outskirts of Clacton.
The greyhound was treated by a local vet and survived.
Tendring Council dog warden Allen East said: “It is the second report of this kind that I have received recently and it is all down to the hot weather which makes the snakes more active."
