Saturday night is apparently a big night for snakes, too.

...a crowd that gathered Saturday evening to see two timber rattlesnakes in the drainage ditch on the north side of Cecil Ashburn Drive near the top of Huntsville Mountain.

The snakes appeared to be mating...

The crowd watched, amazed at the beauty of nature....those magnificent snakes.....and then they killed them all with guns, shovels and automobiles.

Well, I'll be.
I thought they did.
I didn't realize that while I was out and photographing them that the ones that I would find with their heads chopped off were just victims of something other than humans.
I stand corrected, I guess.

Sorry - I didn't mean to kill the thread! It's just that it really riles me - the ignorance that some people have when it comes to snakes. I'm emotionally scarred from witnessing it.

So, I am sorry that I posted what I did. The video must be pretty cool.
