Rattlesnake spotted Monday at Trancas Crossing Park

City workers came across a rattlesnake near the trail while working at Trancas Crossing Park today.  Warning signs have been placed at the park, advising the public to stay on designated trails. According to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife: "Generally not aggressive, rattlesnakes strike when threatened or deliberately provoked, but given room they will retreat. Most snake bites occur when a rattlesnake is handled or accidentally touched by someone walking or climbing."

Like Global Warming it is called Summer time. We live in rattlesnake habitat. Also this snake has a warning it will make a sound. So the only real danger is if your Dog or 6 Year old is off there leash. Stay on the Trail. But even the bums who roam the Trail after dark when it is closed need to watch for the snakes on the warm pavement.
