FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Jay Richitelli says he is the third Floridian in three years to
be attacked in a Wal-Mart by a pygmy rattler. Two others were
bitten in 2006 at the retailer's stores in Central Florida..
Richitelli's attorney says the Bentonville, Arkansas company
should have taken steps to prevent the attacks after they happened
Wal-Mart wouldn't comment on the litigation filed in Broward
County Circuit Court, but said customer safety is its top priority.
Richitelli says he still has respiratory problems and scars from
the 2008 bite.
But he's been back to Wal-Mart several times, saying
their prices are too good to shop elsewhere.
