So, Lana asked me to help her with the garbage. We open the entry door about to step into the garage and encounter this Timber rattler (canebrake rattler). I killed it with a stick and had an empty clorox jug and slid it down in it before I thought about what I was doing. A few minutes later I thought it'd nice to skin it and salt out the hide. when I took it out of the jug, though, the skin had already rotted in that 7 or 8 minutes. there was still a couple ounces of clorox in the jug. Oh well. Just thankful it showed up when it did. An hour earlier my 18 month old grandson was running around all in the garage and by the flower bed at the garage entrance. a 1.5-2 foot rattler can be more deadly than an adult sometimes. .
