I have always wondered why people hate snakes. Is it the fact that they are legless, sterotypes, or do they think they aren't as cute as a bunny? I have loved snakes since I was born on this planet, and I will love them all the same when I die. I would tell people about snakes and they would look at me like I was crazy for even considering liking snakes. I'm just sick of this hate. SICK of it. And people need to grow up. Just because it isn't cute, doesn't mean it is some mindless killing machine that will kill any person it sees. I also HATE rattle snake round ups. They rip rattle snakes from areas that aren't populated, store them in air conditioned buildings, and then slaughter them in front of hunderds of people out of fear and for amusment. We need to outlaw rattlesnake round ups! I am ashamed I live in Tx because of rattlesnake round ups. Sorry for pouring this on you but it is either here or I walk outside and yell it at my neighbors.
