Puppy killed by poisonous snake during walk in Oviedo
<p> Pet owners are on alert after a 5-month-old puppy was killed after being bitten by a snake while out for a walk.</p><p> It happened on Westborne Drive just south of Hagery High School.</p><p> The dog died not even two hours after being bitten.</p><p> "He was a perfectly healthy dog," said Jack's owner, Mark Thomas.</p><p> Like every morning, Thomas would take the miniature Schnauzer for a walk, only this time, "just instantaneously, within an hour and half he was gone," said Thomas.</p><p> Thomas said minutes after Jack was outside, he became lethargic and began vomiting.</p><p> "He was paralyzed by the time we got to the vet and about another 45 minutes later, he had gone into cardiac arrest and died," said Thomas.</p><p> The veterinarian told the Thomas' a coral snake was to blame.</p><p> "Our grass is relatively short and I did not see this snake," said Thomas.</p><p> Florida Fish and Wildlife Officials said coral snakes are found all over the Central Florida area, including Seminole County. It is not uncommon to see them, but it is rare for the poisonous snakes to bite because they are not aggressive. However, when they do bite, their venom is very strong.</p><p> "Watch your son, watch your daughter, your babies, watch your grandchildren. Don't let them walk around, crawl around, make sure their covered," urged Thomas.</p><p> Now, the Thomases just want families to remember these snakes are out there and that they're deadly.</p><p> "I'm trying to sidetrack the anger and see what can I do to help everyone else," said Thomas.</p><p> This is the second dog the Thomases have lost in eight months.</p><p> The snakes are colorful and that is why sometimes they can look appealing to children.</p><p> Wildlife officials urge people to stay away from them if spotted, especially coral snakes who are elusive. In Jack's case, the family believes he may have stepped on it.</p>

Mom says son left suicide note over bullying at Greenwood Lakes Elementary
<p> A Seminole County mother says she found her 11-year-old son's suicide note saying he wanted to take his life because he's being bullied.</p><p> Melissa Gusaeff says her son Jordan is in sixth grade at Greenwood Lakes Middle School, the same school where<a href="http://www.clickorlando.com/news/attorney-more-parents-coming-forward-about-bullying-after-seminole-teens-suicide/28089356" target="_blank"> 14-year-old Lamar Hawkins</a> committed suicide on campus last week.&#160; Hawkins parents say he did it because he was bullied at school.</p><p> "I don't even know how many other children are going through and just not saying it," Gusaeff said.</p><p> Jordan and Lamar were best friends, according to Gusaeff.&#160; The two hit it off on the first day of school when they realized they are both from New York and had lunch together every day, according to Gusaeff.&#160;&#160;</p><p> They were also both the targets of bullies she said.</p><p> "Someone has to come out and say it's not stopping because it has not stopped," Gusaeff said, referring to the bullying.</p><p> Gusaeff says she went to school administrators after one of the bullies stabbed her son in the neck with a pencil two weeks ago.</p><p> She says she was promised a copy of the video from the school bus that could have shown the incident, but she says she never got it.</p><p> Local 6 asked Lisa Page who is the prevention specialist with Seminole County Schools if enough is being done to prevent bullying.</p><p> She says the district has numerous programs for bully prevention, including a bullying hotline, where tips go straight to a school's principal for investigation.</p><p> "Is it a perfect world? Of course it's not," Page said.&#160; "But I feel like we are putting forth some really strong efforts in Seminole County."</p><p> But that doesn't sit well with Gusaef, who says her son is still dealing bullies after his best friend took his life.</p><p> "My son is traumatized, and I can imagine how many other kids are traumatized, because I'm traumatized and I'm 35," she said.</p><p> A district spokesperson said they could not comment about Gusaeff's case because they haven't had time to investigate.</p><p> The Seminole County Sheriff's Office says they are still investigating Hawkins' suicide and can't say whether bullying was a factor.</p>

Complaints pile up over mound of tires in front lawn
