Title: Interesting rattkesnake info.
Post by: TFTN Admin on May 06, 2018, 07:25:46 AM
Rattlers generally migrate from 1.3 to 2.5 miles (2 to 4 km) from their den each summer, with a maximum movement of 4.5 miles (7.2 km) observed.
That means there's a den near my place!!

I have a friend who has a jack russell get bit by a cottonmouth and the vet told him to feed him a pound of bacon uncooked and wrap the bite wound with a bandage with a bunch of alum powder (can get at the grocery store in the spice aisle).   Swap out the bandage every few minutes first, then hourly.  The alum will pull out the poison.  I don't know really what the bacon does, but the dog lived.
