WARNING: This video will give you nightmares. Guaranteed.
We’re not big fans of killing snakes when it’s not absolutely necessary.
Of course, then it always comes down to one man’s definition of necessary versus another’s. If it’s near you home, near your livestock, near your pets… the list goes on and on.
If you do feel the need to dispatch a huge honking rattlesnake, however, it’s imperative that you must skin it and display the hide as evidence of your own historic battle with a wily serpent.
And to achieve that, you will either have to a.) take the snake to the taxidermist and pay through the nose, or b.) skin that sucker yourself.
If you choose option B, (or if you love horror movies), you will probably wish you had watched this video.
Let us warn you again though, it’s not for the faint of heart.
