Now that’s a big snake.
A giant rattlesnake estimated to be between eight and ten feet in length was killed in Arkansas by a man who said it attacked his dog.
A western diamondback rattlesnake was killed in West Hartford, Arkansas by a landowner near Poteau Mountain.
Steve White said that the snake attacked his two dogs, one of which died, which prompted him to kill the snake and take pictures afterward.
The pictures subsequently made the rounds on social media and caused quite the stir.
Rattlesnakes of that species usually grow to between four and five feet long, but bigger ones have been reported over the years.
