Dan and the rattlesnake!!!

Monday, May 13, 2013

Dan found a rattlesnake under a board on the property today. He had to kill it not only for his safety but for the cats and dogs. Usually the dogs are in the fenced in area but Missy likes to follow Dan around and "help" him with the yard work. I hate killing anything but that had to be done. He killed it with a shovel. I had the Ruger at work with me. Tomorrow I'll leave it here with ammo ready just in case. This is the first time I have had a rattler as far as I know and I have lived here for 12 years!!! Dan thinks it came from the ranch down below me since they are dividing up the property and have been drilling wells. The movement and noise may have driven it up to our place. Thanks Dan for taking care of it.
Have a good night everyone!!!
