Cruel and Unusual Rattlesnake Roundups
Every year, hundreds of eastern diamondback rattlesnakes, western diamondbacks and timber rattlesnakes are rounded up and tortured in front of a paying audience. Because rattlesnakes are venomous, they are widely feared and have absolutely none of the appeal that other endangered mammals or birds have, which means that the average person will not lift a finger or even a toe to help save them.Rattlesnake roundups destroy the environment by removing efficient predators who eat thousands of mice a year, and they damage soil using an illegal method of collecting known as "gassing". Gassing involves squirting gasolinedown a hole until something comes out of it. Help stop this affront to humanity!
