The western diamondback rattlesnake is responsible for the vast majority of snakebite fatalities in the Southwest.
Their venom can destroy muscle tissue causing horrific damage to the heart leading to catastrophic hemorrhaging and death.
The cameraman in this video decides to kill this rattler with extreme prejudice using nothing more than a bow and arrow. He puts an arrow through it’s eye and the snake is gone immediately.
