    Rattlesnake roundups

    So, this is a video from The Dodo YouTube channel depicting Rattlesnake Roundups across the country.



    Now, being someone who thoroughly dislikes PETA, I'm not one to just jump on the propaganda train in regards to believing the way they're describing the video. At the same time, if you're going to kill an animal, do it in a humane way, like cattle farmers using an electric bolt to stun a cow while they butcher it. Furthermore, I know that a snakes body can still writhe around on the ground even after communication with the head has stopped. As such, does anyone have further information about what these events are? If I try looking for it on the internet, I'll probably get a lot of "inhumane treatment" rhetoric. The one thing I think I can guess about this is they're trying to get the rattlesnake population under control and this is the easiest way to do it.

    Rattlesnakes kill. So its a good idea to keep the population down, or they start invading towns and cities.

    I think poisonous snakes should be destroyed. They are sneaky bastards that like nothing better then striking a person. Fortunately most times the strike is a dry strike where little venom is injected.

    Never the less they do kill so why would we tolerate them? Destroy the poisonous snake and introduce black snakes.

    Like Smartypants said, like any creatures you have to keep the herds down or they will overtake other animals and become a danger to humans. I lived in Texas when this was going on, many folks attended to watch the show and enjoy the food. rattlesnake is good good good eating. taste like chicken. lol

    When politicians set themselves above the law; when Governors command by fiat rather than by Constitution; when bearocrats imagine that they posses legislative power... ...then true Constitutional and Divine Obedience demands “defiance” and “civil disobediene”.

    I lived in West Texas for a while and they had rattlesnake round ups every spring........... I've seen rattlesnakes like the ones in this picture. The sound of the rattling going on there is very loud.

    I have a dear friend who did a demonstration with rattlesnakes during that show. He knew the strike habits of every snake he got into the pit with, but at one point, one came up behind him and got him at the base of his thumb. It almost killed him. That stopped his round up days.... and also put a stop to his day job as a surgical nurse.

    Tastes like chicken. Greasy chicken, but chicken nevertheless.
