Last Stand of the Massasauga Rattler
Traverse City Record-Eagle outdoor writer Bruce Bischoff reports that the Eastern Massasauga rattlesnake may be making its last stand in the swamps of Michigan. A 1990s assessment found rattlers at 204 sites in 50 counties, with populations in Crawford, Kalkaska, and Iosco Counties while a more recent study found the snakes at just 79 sites in 27 counties. The article provides good depth on the rattler and is well worth a read.
