This was posted in chat today and I felt it was too important to be missed by the chat box scrolling. .

Afternoon all! Craig from VCA here. Just a quick PSA to remind you to watch out for snakes this season. We are averaging a bite every 7-10 days at the animal hospital. Two have been neurological venom snakes and both dogs died from the effects. They have been primarily in the Holcomb and Hannah Flats area, but the last one was over by the gun club on North Shore. That was one of the fatalities, so we just wanted to help spread the word. Its a busy snake season and we do have hybridized snakes carrying neurotoxic venom...not just the traditional hemotoxic variety.

It's got a bunch of good details about rattlesnakes around the Big Bear area.

Some Mojave snakes have adapted to be both Neurotoxic and Hemotoxic. This makes their bites more difficult to treat, as you don't know which type or mix of venom a particular population may have.

Thanks for the link Jelly.... it says in the article they live at an altitude up to 5000 ft. Big bear city sits at 6700 ft. are they still a threat, or is the article wrong?

When you’re happy you enjoy the music, when you’re sad you understand the lyrics.

The ecology in Baldwin Lake is very similar to lower elevations. We have beavertail cactus, sage brush, rabbit brush, desert prickley poppy - and Mojave snakes. It just is a bit colder in winter.

Get your dogs avoidance trained! It saves their lives- and could save yours as they alert to snakes much earlier than our senses notify us!!

Felt bad for the driver. Gotta be the worst! He was doing his best but obviously had never been up 18 and had NO idea how sharp that upper hairpin really is.

Anyone hear anything about the semi stuck on the hairpins this morning? I was a few cars back. Watched the non-thinking person in front of me try to pass a car so she could squeeze through. (no chance!) That car blocked her or it could have been worse!

Power out in Baldwin, I had a breaker off wiring and my lamp stayed on so the room I was working in was still lit. My gal came in thinking it was me, hah. Back on now? KBHR was cutting in n out.

Wow you guys never had trash cans and pickup before. That’s amazing! In Big Bear we’ve had it for the 25 years I’ve been here, oh, you have a new 32 gallon automated can provided by CSD. I’m thinking now,think think think. Trash can new, trash cans old, vacation rental trashy people, seems like nothing new. Just more cans.
