Rattlesnakes Are Moving In Our County.
John's daughter has killed two in her yard so far this spring. The ranch farm house is well known to have rattlesnakes around it. When we lived there for fourteen months I kept the yard moved and trimmed low and we never saw one in the yard. Who ever cleans the front yard when the renters move needs to be very careful as they have let the grass grow and have junk around. Two previous renters have found a rattlesnake by the front step. A lady we know was bitten a few years ago by a young snake when she was moving a stepping stone. She almost died and her cat did die from the bite it got before her. I try to always look down on the ground before I step out of the truck and I don't step out onto the back porch without turning the light on as every year they are found even here in town. I wish everyone where there are rattlesnakes safekeeping.
