yikes, luckily my husband wasnt bit. Now I am worried about the dogs. Wylie more, because she loves to chase the critters. this was inside our fence. we have seasonal grass that needs to be week-wacked. he hit it and killed it. he didnt realize it was a rattler until he looked up the pic. I have been worried because we have neighbors whose dogs have been bit. But not I now am really worried about my husband because he weed-wacks about 3 acres this time of year to prepare for the fire season.
