Animal Control Officer
Spring Valley faces steep fines for apparently violating a state law requiring municipalities issuing dog licenses to have an animal control officer.
State and local authorities were looking into the purchase of the snakes and whether the seller violated any laws.
Fair Lawn police said the 25-year-old bought the albino Monocled Cobra, an eastern diamondback rattlesnake and a copperhead snake in Pennsylvania.
Officers said the victims were treated for minor injuries. The dogs couldn’t be located at the scene.
