Watch where you’re walkin’!

Several weed-eater guys have reported coming across “HUGE” rattlesnakes this week on Palomar Mountain.  Some people have found that using ski poles as walking sticks works well.

Have pets?  See note below from an animal hospital too.

<<So Rattlesnake season is officially here! If hiking or walking near brush, you should bring a walking stick with you. If you notice that your pet has been bitten by a rattlesnake, try to identify where the pet was bitten, as well as what the snake looked like (size, color pattern). The faster the bite is recognized, the more effective the treatment is. DO NOT try to cut the bite wound open or suck out the poison. Seek veterinary attention immediately for proper treatment!
