More mindless glorification of unnecessary predation
Rattlesnakes are an important part of the ecosystem. Removing them from people's homes and other places where they pose a threat and relocating is one thing. People who have interfered with ecosystems always reap even worse results over the long term, obliterating known threats with their own checks and balances with new, often rapacious and unstoppable ones.
Also, Texas is home to some of the largest and most cosmopolitan cities in this country. Why glorify even more stereotypes of redneck ignorance?
Slaughtering animals for a few bucks is just criminal. Scared of rattlesnakes? Don't go where they live. Or if you see them, call the authorities to safely remove them.
Applauding the people who do so in the quest for ratings and advertising dollars--just as bad. Shame on you, Animal Planet!
