Rattlesnake, A close call tonight


Got a hotline call tonight about a rattlesnake in a backyard. When I got there the people said " Hey wasnt you here last year " I sure was, I remembered the street Saddlehorn Drive..
They had kelp the Mojave rattlesnake in the connor of their back lot by pitching shovel fulls of dirt at it. I snook up on it and "tonged" it. It went crazy, but had no problems getting it into the relocation bucket.

At the release It was backing up rapidly, it head forward and the tail close to me.. It this point it took a serious poke at me. I was surprised. Usually if they strike at me it was from being in a coiled or S position.. Well I lived throught it and know better now.

It backed into this bush to make it stand. When I left it was still in this position...Just waiting

Whoa! It's a dangerous job, but somebody's gotta do it. Awesome shots. I think I'd be too nervous to take many pictures! As all have said, be careful out there!
