Sadly, the cruel activities at rattlesnake roundups still occur in a few states in the United States. People are shocked when they realize what actually happens to the animals at these events. I continue to share information which helps us
to oppose the cruelty of rattlesnake roundups because I believe how we treat the creatures with whom we share the earth reflects how we view those creatures, ourselves and each other. We humans have a long ways to go but we must continue to move forward…The survival of life on earth depends on it…

This 11 minute documentary is an excellent and accurate depiction of rattlesnake behavior and also of the cruel activities practiced at rattlesnake roundups. Please take time to watch it and take whatever action you can to stop these cruel events. Remember when encountering snakes and all animals in the wild, all animals are different and will behave differently - please leave wildlife alone when you encounter it - you are in the animals’ home not yours.
