There have been MANY studies done on timber rattlesnakes, the kind we have in Tennessee and ALL of these studies have shown that relocating these snakes DOES NOT work. If timber rattlesnakes are relocated to far from their communal dens the mortality rate is close to 100 percent. Restocking timber rattlesnakes is not a feasable solution and no restocking programs exist. All these stories about the DNR restocking rattlesnakes are untrue, it Would NOT WORK even if they tried.

I was picking up trophies and plaques at a place here in town a fee years ago and see these danger signs they have made up for the Missouri Conservation Dept. They were to be placed on and were signs that read reinhabited historic rattlesnake den. I asked the guy where they were for and he said all the dept would tell him is close. Missouri like many other states has this idea that if it once lived here it should be turned loose to repopulate again. Snakes, elk, mountain lion, wolves the list goes on.
I personally have never seen a rattler in the wild here but most of you have read of our copperhead issue. As for encroaching on their territory, this yard is mine and my grandchildren play here. If stay in the woods and they are safe from me. They come in my yard my grandchildren safety comes first. Up to 12 but haven't seen any in a couple of weeks. Maybe they noticed their lost relatives and spread the word to keep away.
