Rattlesnake found at Medicine Lodge, KS

(Note: 'Snopes,' says there might be a problem with this story, still a BF snake IMHO!)

Next time you're out in the tall grass, remember this one.

This snake was recently found at old stripping plant located just
south of Highway 160 near Medicine Lodge Kansas.


A reminder that these creatures are actually out there and no
matter what you believe,

Sometimes they should get not only prescriptive rights to be
there but the full right of way!

9 feet, 1 inch - 97 lbs .

DEEP-FRIED RATTLESNAKE

1 medium-sized rattlesnake (3-4 lbs.), cut into steaks
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup cracker crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
1 teaspoon salt
Dash pepper

Mix dry ingredients. Whisk milk into beaten egg and use to dip
snake steaks.
Then coat them with dry ingredients. Fry, uncovered, in 400
degree oil until brown.

Yum,Yum! It sorta tastes like chicken.

(Yes! They really do taste like chicken!)

There was a documentary about legends , this particular one was a native American indian legend regarding giant rattle snakes that lived on top of a plateau in one of the dusty southern states.

One of the doc makers started to climb the cliff got half way up and was face to face with a big fcuk off rattle snake, he claimed that the big rattle snakes on the cliff were the biggest on record.
