And just why reintroduce them? Seems like breeding mosquitoes, or deer ticks or other hazards to human health. WOlves and grizzlies and redtailed hawks and eagles I can relate to preserving, but rattlers? The only reason in my anthropocentric view I can come up with is for a venom farm to produce antivenom. Or are they useful agains rats and pigeons as well as toddlers and the frail elderly? Grass snakes can get rats, and cats do well (at least mine do).

I vaguely recall some concerns about the declining snake population affecting rodent control where I lived. The airfield was rat central. But, I have no idea if that's the rationale for the current breeding effort.

There's a Blago joke in here somewhere, I just know it.
