Rattlesnake day returns to the Texas Capitol

As happens around this time of year, rattlesnakes from Sweetwater, Texas made their way to the Texas Capitol on Monday to promote the city’s annual rattlesnake round-up.

This year, Statesman photographer Jay Janner caught some footage of what happens if you venture a little too close to one of the reptiles, brought and managed by the Sweetwater Jaycees
