I do not think you are right and quoting one study by someone wanting to get their name on a paper is not enough evidence for me.

I don’t think Rick Shine counts as “someone wanting to get their name on a paper”, as you say, since he is one of perhaps the top two snake experts in the world. He publishes about a paper a week and has done so for decades. Getting his name in a paper is old news for him. But, I’m not surprised you did not know that.

I’d be careful about bashing that study — and if you want to bash it, do it the proper way by sending in a response to the journal that published it. Science is a put-up or shut-up business. Flapping your gums on a forum doesn’t count as "putting up” the data.

One person's study does not make for scientific proof as you call it.

And since you have not cited ANYthing peer-reviewed that supports rattlesnake round-ups, I’d say the burden of proof is on your end. I can, however, if you wish, provide you with plenty of professional herpetologists’ publications who have stated that rattlesnake round-ups is environmentally unsustainable and ethically wrong. You wanna go there? We can.
