March 22, 2012

Got snakes?

The American Business Club is hoping for a good turnout of the slithery creatures in time for its annual Rattlesnake Roundup this weekend at the Howard County Fair Barns.

The show, held in the east barn, will be running fro 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. It's the 48th edition of the event.
AMBUCS will be purchasing rattlesnakes all day Friday and on show days until about 4 p.m. Sunday. The process is pretty simple, according to long-time club member Dub Day.

“Hunters bring them in and we weigh them and put them in the holding pen,” he said.
