Snake Handling At Church


Each Wednesday night I load a van with kids and to-go boxes to deliver meals to members of our community.  This week the van totaled 11 kids.  Thankfully, my wife and 3 year old daughter were absent.

We reached the third house and hopped out in our usual noisy but polite fashion.  I quickly walked around the van and spotted a cat.  Just in front of the cat was a rattlesnake curled and ready to strike.


I forced the kids back into the van and called over to a neighbor sitting on the front porch.  Within a matter of a minute … the snake was handled.
