Eric, it's all good and we're all just herpers having a discussion here. My only comment on the gist of this discussion is that rattlesnake roundups are not objectionable to me because animals are killed/exploited-I kill animals myself, and eat them happily-, but because there is, too often, little or no respect shown the snakes, and sadism and cruelty are all too common. Many of the folks (if not most) who put on and attend these events seem to have an actual hatred of what I believe is a magnificent and beneficial animal. That isn't cool with me.

There's also the question of sustainability, but that varies according to locale and is arguable-I admit I notice no shortage of atrox in the parts of Texas I range.
