A bud of mine is a professional rattlesnake wrangler and he catches them live, takes them home and keeps them in cages until ready for harvest.
He sells the meat, the skin, the head and the rattles. The only thing that goes to waste is the inards.
You ought to hear the din when you walk into his garage. Stands the hair up on your neck.
When people come over he warns them to watch where they sit because a couple got loose. It's his favorite prank.
