Dancing in the Dark With a Six Foot Timber Rattlesnake

by William Owens
(Ridgeway,South Carolina,USA)

One night I came home from work and heard my six Pyrs barking in the pasture behind the house. I went into the pasture with my stick and the intention of settling what I thought was a simple family argument.

As I approached the herd, I saw a rattlesnake completely surrounded by my Great Pyrs. I quickly ordered them to follow me back to the kennel. Then I retrieved my shotgun and a flashlight. I then proceeded back to the location of the snake. However, it was gone. I searched for it to no avail.

Finally, I returned to the kennel and let my big male,Winston,out and told him to find the snake. Which he promptly did. About two minutes later,the snake died of lead poisoning. The timber rattlesnake was six feet long and had fourteen rattles on it. It was a killer and was ruler of its domain until it ran into my Pyrs. My Pyrs perceived as a threat that had to be eliminated from their pasture.
