What is it with the diamondbacks this year? We dispatched the third aggressive Rattler tonight. This one was by far the biggest. At least 5 foot+, Had 8 rattles and a button, was thick as a 3" pipe... Way too huge for my comfort! Again striking at everything around. Possibly bit one of the small puppies we can't tell We're trying to make sure they are all located and examined but with 4 puppies absolutely carbon copies of each other, we are either rechecking ones we've checked and missing one or two or else no one was bitten thank goodness! I still wouldn't be surprised to find a dead puppy by morning. We had one that went through quite a whining spell This snake was right outside a bedroom window where a bunch of the dogs sleep at night.This is the third aggressive Rattler this season! Last year we never even saw one this year 3 and all striking at anything that moves. Seems odd that they're sooooo aggressive this year.Anyone know why? I hate dispatching the beauties but safety for ourselves and our pets comes first and foremost!
