Rattlesnake Attacks Puppy

When we first found the puppy bitten by the rattlesnake, we assumed it happened in the tall grass by the bird pen while on a walk with puppy owners.(See https://sneakingbliss.com/2018/08/26/rattlesnake-strike/) It just made sense that the puppy surprised the snake and in defense the snake bit. Yesterday, I reviewed footage of the puppy cam to see if I could observe any odd behavior after the puppies returned to the playpen following the walk. What I saw was unsettling to say the least. As the video plays, keep an eye on the right side of the ball pit.

    • A nice play yard provides a lot of healthy stimulation for growing puppies. We don’t know how long the snake was hiding under the ball pit. I’m still reviewing footage to see when it came in. Rattlesnakes can go a long time without a meal. It may have been there for days.
