Rattlesnakes to be skinned and “milked” of their venom for cruel entertainment

Rattlesnakes to be skinned and “milked” of their venom for cruel entertainment

Despite being an extremely cruel event, the annual World’s Largest Rattlesnake Roundup in Sweetwater, Texas, continues to take place.

Last weekend in Texas, a rattlesnake event took place, which included terrifying acts such as skinning, slaughtering, and “milking” the creatures of their venom.

A contest for local young women is also organized, in which they take turns beheading snakes in the hopes of being crowned ‘Miss Snake Charmer.’
