DANGEROUS WILDLIFE — The Clarkston Walmart had a special on rattlesnake bites Saturday.
A man says he reached down to pick up a stick lying in the gardening aisle of a Wal-Mart in Clarkston, Wash., only to discover that it was a rattlesnake that then bit his hand.
On the lighter side, some people are asking if the snake blended in because it was made in China?
Rattlesnakes very rarely are agressive except when disturbed. Most rattlenake bites occur when someone accidently puts a hand down near a snake, as in scrambling on rocks, or, more often, when someone intentionally tries to handle a snake.
The photo above was taken the same day in Montana by wildlife photographer Jaime Johnson.
The warm weather is letting the snakes be active.
