Government Canyon Employees Alert Visitors After Rattlesnake Found Near Parking Lot

The Government Canyon State Natural Area shared a picture to its Facebook earlier this week showing a rattlesnake that was caught sliding around the state park.

According to the post, the rattlesnake was more active due to the warmer weather we had during the weekend. A resource specialist with the park told the San Antonio Express-News that the snake was probably "sunning himself."

After a park employee found the rattlesnake near a parking lot of the visitor's center, they relocated it away to a closed section of the park.

Naturally, Facebook users left comments about being more careful in the area, as well as others who weren't bothered by the rattlesnake.
