#wildnernesswednesday Yes - there are indeed RATTLESNAKES here in Gold Country! Sadly however, though they should be treated with respect, rattlesnakes are very much misunderstood and have received some bad press ...According to the website WildSafeBC.com the Northern Pacific Rattlesnake is the only rattlesnake found in BC and one of only three remaining rattlesnake species in Canada. They are generally found in the Southern Interior. Rattlesnakes are generally shy and non-aggressive.Normally LESS THAN 5 PEOPLE A YEAR are bitten by rattlesnakes. Bites are rarely fatal if treated promptly. Most snake bites are due to people deliberately trying to handle or harm rattlesnakes. NOTE! It is illegal to harm, capture or kill a rattlesnake!The website “BC Reptiles and Amphibians” shares some tips on how to stay safe in rattlesnake habitat:1. Keep your hands and feet where you can see them. Avoid stepping close to logs, shrubs and boulders where snakes may be hiding.2. Wear ankle-high boots and long loose pants while walking in rattlesnake habitat.3. If you must walk through tall grass, carry a long walking stick to disturb the grass in front of you or to tap rocks and logs. This will warn snakes that you are nearby.4. Walk or hike with a partner! This is always a good practice and especially in areas of high wildlife activity.5. Teach children to respect snakes and not to pick them up. This will help to prevent snake bites.6. Never touch a rattlesnake EVEN IF IT APPEARS TO BE DEAD! The biting instinct can remain intact even after the snake is dead.Stay on trails and keep your dog on a leash. (Off-leash dogs that venture off trails are at higher risk than leashed dogs to receive a snake bite).7. If you see or hear a snake, first stop and look around you to see if there are other snakes nearby. Then carefully and slowly move at least 5 meters away from the snake. ... See MoreSee Less
