Posted by: rugbyman2000 at Thu Sep 8 21:55:35 2005 [ Report Abuse ] [ Email Message ] Hey guys, Research shows rattlesnake roundup events have a terrible effect on native populations. Snakes are always killed or hurt for a bunch of ignorant people to have "fun". There are currently only seven states where rattlesnake roundup events are legal, TX, OK, KS, NM, PA, AL and GA. Members from Lancaster Herpetology Society, as well as several environmental/wildlife experts across the state of PA are currently preparing to take the issue before Pennsylvania state legislature in the coming weeks or months. We need all the support we can get to successfully bring forth legislation banning these terrible events. We are looking for letter-writers along with some other ways you can help. If you'd like to find out how you can get involved in this cause, please get in touch. Thanks for your help everyone!
