The first rattlesnake of the year that your reporter has heard about was on her property! Daughter Cindy and friends were at the house and the Shearers were at breakfast in the Ferry. The kids were gathering kindling from the woodpile and there was the small snake. It was dispatched and saved for the parents to see! Cindy said it was the first time to see a rattler in the wild.

Male skunks are out and about looking for females. Here is the recipe for spray removal: mix 1 quart hydrogen peroxide, 1/3 cup baking soda and 1 tablespoon of liquid soap. Scrub dog and leave on for a minute then wash off. Do this within four hours of skunking. Can be used on people also.
