It's rattlesnake number 12 for the Noe family. It was by the dog pen at night and had 12 rattles and a button. Rattlesnakes add a rattle every time they shed their skin, young snakes might shed 4 times a year, less as they age. Randy Noe had to weed whack the yard for granddaughter Aubrey Mendonca's third birthday party so there would be no hiding places for snakes. Aubrey wanted a swim party for family and friends and Bev didn't want to have children running around with a possibility of snakes in the grass.

The mountain lion was sighted again, this time Bryce Hobbs, son of Bridgette and Dusty, was walking the dogs on the Rushing Rapids Trail near dusk (south side of the river) when he heard some sound like yelping and the lion stepped onto the trail. Bryce held the dogs and then the lion went into the brush. The Fish and Game were going to look into this, as maybe the sound was young lions or maybe the lion's dinner! Bryce was really scared!
