Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup 2007-Some Photos are Very Graphic

This is the 49th Annivesary of the Worlds Largest Rattlesnake Roundup held in Sweetwater Texas every March. Over 14,000 lbs of rattlesnakes are rounded up from the area around the town in west Texas and the event attracts over 200,000 people from all over the world. If you are interested in rattlesnake products there are some links shown in some of the pictures and you can also contact the roundup itself for information. I AM JUST A PHOTO DUDE AND NOT A SELLER OF RATTLESNAKE PRODUCTS!
