Two men were bitten by rattlesnakes in unrelated incidents on Sunday.
The first incident happened at about 8:30 a.m. near Cortaro Road and Interstate 10, when a 23-year-old man riding his mountain bike east of the railroad tracks, was bitten in the calf by a snake, Capt. Adam Goldberg, a Northwest fire spokesman, said in a news release.
Shortly before noon, a 68-year-old man who was wearing flip-flops while working in his backyard near Camino de Oeste and Ironwood Hill Drive was bitten on his big toe, the release said.
Both men were taken to the hospital for treatment and were reported in stable condition.
