    Our local paper ran a picture of a Rattle snake that was killed in Burbon Co. Weighed in at like 97 lb.'s. Just wondering if anyone here had seen the snake or knew the story on this "hoss snake"?

    Besides that, a 97lb snake would be between 10 & 15 feet long. Not happening with a rattlesnake.

    Maybe he meant, 9.7 lbs., that would be more realistic.

    Seen the email. Looked real, but not so sure it was. Little exaggeration I believe.

    Is it me or does anyone else doubt this guy could hold 97 lbs up like this. And the area of the background is kind of suspicious as well.​

    That is NOT bourbon county.
    The Grass would be green.
    There would not be industrial buildings in the background.
    and in KY we only hold fish and deer to try and make them look bigger than they are.

    I seriouly doubt that the worlds biggest rattlesnake, even if it was on Roids would weigh 97 lbs.
