The first signs have started appearing in my state advertising for the next year's 'rattlesnake roundups'. With an estimated 100,000 eastern rattlesnakes left in the entire US, I still can't believe the amount of cruelty that goes on at these is...Well, no, it's not legal. Nothing legal about sewing animals mouths shut so they starve, pouring gasoline into animal dens hoping snakes jump out, or skinning them alive for entertainment. No one does anything about it though, because they aren't snuggly. Not like these guys don't already get killed enough just for being snakes(Or for food or for their skins or habitat destruction)
I'm not going to stand by and just complain anymore though. Ugh. I've got to do something, or else we are about to face a huge ecological disaster. I'm just afraid it will be too late.
Honestly, sorry about this post. I tried as hard as I could to not be graphic but.. Well, there is no other way to describe what happens at these things other than the facts, and they are pretty brutal. Ugh. I could say so much more, but it's all so terrible.
