At the annual rattlesnake roundup in Sweetwater, Texas, in early March, U.S. Junior Chamber sponsors and volunteers slaughtered 3,890 pounds of rattlesnakes. For weeks or even months, rattlesnakes are stored in crowded barrels until it's roundup time. The snakes that have not suffocated under their kin arrive hungry, dehydrated, and sick from gasoline that was sprayed into their burrows to flush them out.
