POSTED May 12, 2010 1:41 a.m.

Rattlesnake alert: Michel and Gordon Griesner have killed two young snakes. One was out back in the rose garden and Michel dispatched it and the other was by their front walk and Gordon dispatched that one. Kathy Shuper caught one in a glue trap she had set out for mice in the washroom and it was alive. She was afraid it would come unglued so she called the 50’s Roadhouse and Jewls and her helpers came and took care of it. It too was a young one. The Ohe family’s old dog was bit and had to be put down. A female rattler can have 4-24 young; so if there is one, look out for the others!
