    I work for an industrial fan manufacturer. In the desert south west we have 100s of claims of rattle snakes climbing inside generator sets to try to stay warm. The generators kick on and the snake is turned to a bloody mess...usually causing damage to the radiators, fans, or other equipment. I would always check my truck and any other equipment while in snake country...

    Yeah, I've seen a big o' chicken snake found in a snake boot (ohh the irony) that was left out on the porch. A month or so before that I was across the rd on a porch in the pitch dark taking pics of lightning and had one crawl up under my feet. When the lightning lit up everything I noticed it. He got beat with a grill brush.

    I have to go kill them off the ponds, creeks and sloughs in the lower pastures this weekend so the cows will actually use them instead of the store bought water once the heat gets here.

I looked over and saw a rattle snake crawling up over the grille of the truck. I guess that happens pretty often when its starting to get cool.
    When I lived in Louisiana, I walked outside of the local discount store, and saw a few folks milling around a pickup truck with the hood up. They were all keeping their distance, so I looked closer and saw the head of a pretty good sized water snake hanging down beneath the truck. Two girls had driven in from a rural area about 30 miles away to shop. When they stopped at the store, someone told them about the snake. They opened the hood hoping he would leave, but he liked his toasty warm perch under the hood. Someone had called the police dept., and the two guys from animal control were not too enthused about the task. They had a catch noose around the snake, but he was pretty long, and was wrapped tightly around the truck suspension, etc.. Not being one to mind my own business, I walked over to the two exasperated guys, and the unhappy snake, and told them I did not think that was going to work. This did not gladden their hearts, and they wanted to know what I would do. I suggested they get a can of starting ether and a piece of PVC pipe from the store, and gas the snake. That would put him to sleep, and he would relax his hold on the truck. They gave it a try, and the snake promptly went to sleep and relaxed his grip. I do not know how, or where, that snake hid to make the thirty mile trip without injury.

    Removing its head would make it relax
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."
