“Survival of these snakes in large part depends on whether people continue to persecute them or instead choose to allow these amazing creatures to share the land with us,” said Bill Matturro of Protect All Living Species. “In the Southeast, we are blessed with a rich natural heritage of animals and plants. All of these species — even the rattlesnakes — should be allowed to exist.”Isn’t this story heart-warming.? A nasty creature that has wrecked havoc on the country since clear back in the Garden of Eden has a fan club protecting them from “persecution” and on your tax dime to boot. So when you encounter a rattler this summer be sure and keep in mind the poor folks that want to save the rattlers before you whack them with your shovel.
The Midwest Fish and Wildlife Website (take note of the date of publication) was advocating the protection of snakes since way back in November of 1999 which has to lead me to believe that some of our government paid officials are intertwined with some of these outrageous environmental groups that are pushing for all these nonsensical agendas. Be sure and read the linked stories about this drive to protect the snakes at the links in red above.
