Slithering Surprise! Arizona Fisherman Gets ‘Rattled’ By 5 Foot Rattlesnake On Boat!

If you come across a rattlesnake it’s usually in nature on a walking trail or woods but maybe this snake was on vacation.

On Facebook, Arizona Game and Fish Department Mesa Region reported a Tuscon man had taken his boat out to fish on Roosevelt lake.

But when the man went to change one of his lures, that’s when he saw a sight that may have left him a little rattled.

The man was greeted by a 5-foot western diamondback rattlesnake.

He regained his composure, used slow movements, and grabbed his fishing net to try and remove the snake.

"[I] just wanted to be able to push him out of the boat and not really hurt him or irritate him too much.” the man told Fox News.

The man was eventually able to get the snake off the boat without incident.

An Arizona Game and Fish representative commented the man did the right thing by paying attention to his surroundings.

"If he had not looked where he put his hand, that could have been [an entirely] different situation.” she said.

She went on to remind Arizona residents they live in a desert and snakes can be in unexpected places.
