Rattlesnakes

“Two large rattlesnakes, one seven and one four feet long, were killed recently by a highway construction crew working near Silver Bay, Lake George. The larger snake had 21 rattles and the smaller had 11. The seven-foot reptile was taken from the ground by a steam shovel, and was killed by the workmen. The smaller was discovered crawling on the porch of a nearby house.”
