    For those of you that aren't on the AAT Yahoo group:

    Lake Arrowhead, CA The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department now says the 3-year-old girl bitten by a rattlesnake Monday afternoon was sitting on her front porch in the 1500 block of Sequoia Drive when the incident occurred.


    The media advisory explained a 9-inch Southern Pacific Rattlesnake bit the youngster's left foot. Another juvenile on scene was able to locate the snake and placed it in a container for examination.

    The victim was transported to Mountains Community Hospital and airlifted to Loma Linda for specialized treatment.


    The press release reported the juvenile was in stable condition and showing signs of improvement with the use of anti-venom.


    Citizens in the area are reminded that warmer weather and the recent fires have caused an increase in local sightings and contacts with wildlife.


    The Sheriff's Department urges caution when engaged in outdoor activities and extra diligence in monitoring children and pets.


    Original Story Monday 5:55 p.m.

    Lake Arrowhead, CA Shortly after 4 p.m. Monday, a rattlesnake bit a 3-year-old girl inside the child's residence on Sequoia Lane in Lake Arrowhead. The child was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center for treatment.


    The youngster's mother accompanied the bite victim in the helicopter. Other family members drove to Loma Linda following the 4:07 p.m. incident.


    Initial reports indicate the snake got into the house and bit the toddler who was taken to the landing zone for transport. Because of the proximity to Mountains Community Hospital, the helipad at that facility was most likely utilized by the air ambulance.

        If you have dogs that you take with you on the trail you may want to consider running your dog through a snake avoidance class

                  I did not take the picture. I got them off our geocaching forum.

                    Leave my freinds alone...

                    That, my fellow Jeepers is a wintering den. In Big Spring Texas every year they hold a rattle snake round up. That's where I learned my love of snakes, especially the rattler. I've stood among piles of rattlers just like and bigger. When they congregate for the winter, to stay warm and conserve energy, there can be litterally hundreds in a den like that. I wish I knew where that was at, I wanna go play! When they first come out of the winter hybernation they are a docile as pussy cats. Here, snakey snakey...

                        It's a little hard to tell in those pictures,but I could swear I see a Western, a Pacific AND a Mojave... Wierd. I didn't know that they winter together.
