    first rattler of the year....

    well killed the 1st rattler of the year near my house. I am amazed with how dry its been that it has taken this long. But on the bright side it looks like the little guy (18" or so) ate a mouse or rate before he meet my shovel

    Down here in AZ near Tucson, they won't allow you kill a rattler unless it's in self defense.
    We're supposed to call the FD, who will try to catch it and relocate it???
    I really want one of these!Hidden Content

    and I though CA was nuts but we can kill them here.... granted some people want us to catch and release them. I just believe in releasing them to the afterlife.

    Cut it open. I'll bet those are eggs. I killed one in our garage about a month ago. When I opened her up, there were 12, almost fully developed eggs inside her!

    @paraquack - You gotta get out of Tucson proper! We are just a short distance from you and not only CAN we kill them (using any means we want), it is the local passtime!

    All our eastern Washington neighbors kill them. There seems to be an inexhaustible supply.

    Great job @shooter !

    The world sho'-nuff needs more King Snakes and less Rattlesnakes!

    PS Be careful @Inor you too! when you cut them open. Baby ratters hatch from eggs INSIDE mama. I've never seen live babies inside a rattlesnake and I don't want to, but it happens!

    If they are in my woods, I leave them alone.
    If they get into the cleared area around the house where the dogs are, they have to die.

    Rattlesnakes and Mohaves have to die wherever they are!

    After one of the first rattlesnakes I killed a greenie snowbird from back east was telling me not to kill them because they are "spiritual animals". My response was: "Good. I'm glad I sent it back to the spirit world then."
