  • Nine days ago, on July 24th, I posted a message to residents of West Lethbridge... "Please watch for rattlesnakes crossing University Drive in the area of the University Stadium. Twice today I have been alerted about a rattlesnake coiled along the northbound curb there. Don’t know what’s compelling this snake to take those risks (assuming it’s just one). We are still in mating season. But if he’s made two attempts, he might make a third." Warning wasn't heeded by those in the driver's seat, and we lost another breeding-aged female

      Yes, but it's very infrequent. Usually a bite means 72 hours in the hospital and no long-term effects

      Yes, if there's three it's likely there's either a hibernaculum (winter den) or rookery (where females have their babies) near or under the shed. If it's a hibernaculum, it will be something like a rodent hole that goes fairly deep, below the frost line underground. If it's a rookery, it could be a hollow under concrete pad or flat rock, something like that

    Ryan thanks for what you do. I live in Phoenix metro area and over the past 7 of the 11 years i have called the fire station in the area to remove rattlers from my front steps. The are very careful with the snakes and take then to the desert and release them. This is the time of the year they show up do to the heavy rains. there is no need to harm them. there are small children in the area and very important to have the snake removed.
    Thanks again

    Great vids and more importantly great stewardship effort.
    Please add me to your draws.
    In my college days I used to help biologists study and relocate Fox and Hognosed snakes and Mississauga rattlers that upset cottagers around E. Georgian Bay. I was really surprised by the apparent personalities of these three species. All three seemed way more intelligent than I presumed and also way more tolerant of us (people) than we were of them.
    Keep up the great work!

    Enter me in for the September contest please! I am in North Carolina and would like to know if you know of ways to make your yard space inviting to possums. They eat ticks and this years tick season has been bad. Last night there was a family of 6 deer in my yard, surely covered in ticks :(. Thanks and I have enjoyed this video and will be watching more!

      What an interesting question. I wish I knew the answer to that, having grown up in Western Oregon, around a lot of possums

    I appreciate you finding a place to let it go. I had a man capture my beautiful skunks and he later told me he drowned them. Ripped his butt and my neighbor and I started taking them in her old truck 2 miles out of town and let them loose like you did.
