This canebrake rattlesnake was too close to the farm workshop at Okra Paradise Farms, so I used a hoe to put it in a cardboard box and took it far away.
How? I show the snake a hoe. It either gets in the box with a nudge from the hoe, or it gets in the box in two pieces.
It’s hard to see a Crotalus horridus in oak leaves. But you can hear it.
The dogs discovered it, and Gretchen herded them and children into the farm workshop.
