The snake was on TV and they showed it coiled and alive with the tail moving and sounding the rattles.They wouldn't say in which town they found it since it's endangered. Thirty years ago I had a road crew bring me one they killed on the side of the road that had a fresh red squirrel in it's stomach. Since the head was totally smashed I skinned and tanned that one and donated the skin to our F&G department. The town they found it in has had a number of sightings over the years and I was surprised they didn't name the town since a lot of tourists visit the woods there. This one was almost completely black but the one I tanned had nice color and markings after the scale sheaths were removed. Maybe they're coming back?
