Michigan Family Catches Rare Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake
Did a rare Eastern Massasauga rattlesnake show up in the garage of a home in Hillsdale County? Some people say, "yes". Some people say it might have just been a milk snake. I'm going to side with the people who own the home, who heard it rattle.
According to MLive.com, Michael Chambers first saw the snake in his yard on August 9th. The next time he saw it was August 11th, in his garage, when he got home from work around midnight. That's when capturing the snake turned into a family project - all captured on video - including Michael's fiance Doreen's nervous commentary.
Here's the story. With action video of the capture from Doreen.
Here's a video from the Michigan DNR to help with identifying the next Massasauga rattlesnake you may comes across:
