There are numerous things wrong with this story:
- Rattlesnakes are NOT allowed to get this big. That thing could swallow me whole and look more like the monster pythons invading our state than a rattler. Clearly, that snake made a deal with the devil.
- What kind of idiot redneck cops don't measure a beast of that size and file some kind of report? At least take down the name of the trapper.
- While you better bet I'd blow that sucker away if it were to show it's forked little tongue in my yard, I really do think it's a shame that a professional trapper saw fit to kill this dragon. Why not take it to the Alligator Farm and place it on exhibit? A waste of a beautiful (and terrifying) specimen.
