Most people dont get bit by snakes because they're intentionally messing with them; they get bit because they're walking around and nearly step on them. The snakes dont run, then bite; they bite first then get outta there! Black snakes eat rodents, too, and they're not venomous. The only good rattler is a dead rattler in my book.

Yes, the rattlers have a "stand your ground" philosophy.

It doesn't really matter that they're non-aggressive or that they don't usually bite unless they're stepped or sat on, or handled. If you're bit, you're bit.

Yeah that is a very closed minded and fear based opinion. But hey, being closed minded isn't illegal, though maybe it should be.
