Big Snake Rattles Vacationers

A family vacationing in Hague (Warren County) had a surprise awaiting them when they got home.

On August 2, ECO LaPoint responded to a residence in the town of Hague, for a report of a trapped timber rattlesnake at a residence. Upon arriving at the home, ECO LaPoint located the snake outside trapped under a tote. Using snake tongs issued by DEC, along with a cloth bag and bucket lid, he safely secured the rattlesnake in the bucket and removed it from the premises. ECO LaPoint transported the rattlesnake to DEC's Green Island maintenance facility where it was temporarily held until it could be released to a suitable location. Timber rattlesnakes are a threatened species in New York. For more information visit DEC's website.
