:I got the following link today. http://www.rattlesnakeroundup.com/research.html
:I have never been to one of these, but I may go this year to see for myself.
:BTW: Texas Parks and Wildlife seems to think this is a good way to collect "valuable biological data"
I believe their is valuable data collected but there are hundreds of other ways of collecting this data,I just think there could possibly be a more enviromental friendly way.It may not make me as angry if these "HICKS" would just collect these snakes either the day of or the the day before instead of collecting months in advance,and not make these poor snakes live in cages way to small with hundreds of snakes living on top of each other in their own feces and without being fed.And if they could possibly go out and catch these snakes responsibly without the gassing of animal burrows which takes a toll on the rest of the enviroment.
