Well this is the first i have ever heard of this. They sure are not trying to spread awareness of this. I know a lot of people that still kill every snake they see.

Sounds to me like if you kill a snake and you don't know what it is....Don't be posting photos on Facebook.

Keyword: Knowing
Maybe I shouldn't have asked! lol
I actually don't ever see to many snakes at all really, I just wanted to information within mind's reach if the opportunity ever presented. I'm not muscular enough for federal prison, or county jail for that matter, and don't have an extra 250k to blow. For those reasons, I'm out!

Timber Rattlers are common on our lease. You’d be surprised how many people do not know they are protected.

It seems to be that to 99% a rattler is a rattler and needs to be killed.

Copperheads and cottonmouths are the only snakes on my kill list. All others get a pass.
