ThEmAdHaTtEr... it's Albuquerque, and yes, it's (The Rattlesnake Museum) a beautiful place to visit. I have gone to one rattlesnake roundup to complain, written letters to the govenor, Senate and the Humane Society, none of whom will do anything. I will never go to another one... it broke my heart, being a reptile and animal lover, to see those creatures totured and killed without reason. Knowing that no amount of money, advice or begging will get these freaks to stop and really think about what they are doing is frustrating.
It doesn't mean I don't do what can from my home... every spring I send out letters. e-mails and protests in an effort to at least ask that the people 'hunt', treat and dispatch the animals humanely.
