Crazy rattlesnake attacking the car
Chiricahua National Monument

Has anybody heard of a rattlesnake attacking
a vehicle? There was a rattlesnake in the road
and we pulled beside it to take a photo, then
he started attacking the car. This very aggressive
rattlesnake slammed into the car door several
times. Didn't get the best photograph, being
afraid he might come through the open window.

some crazy person... instead we found a
