Default Snake--- cool snake story...

Another interesting snake story.. (the short version..and a true story)

There's man island on the man made Lake Lure, in Western North Carolina.
It's called snake island, because it was heaviliy infested with
rattlesnakes!

Around the turn of the century, they guy who created the lake wanted to be
able to use the island, and get wid of the snakes.. so he posted an ad for
$100 to anyone who could clear out the snakes for him.

One farmer took up the challenge. They took about a dozen hogs (male and
female), and left them on the island for one year.

At the end of the year, the island was snake free!

Pig will actually kill AND eat snakes, and not only did the farmer get his
$100, but he also have almost twice as many pigs as well, because they had
over run the island!

Pigs dont have capillaries in their feet, so when snakes bite them, it
doesn't effect them at all!

Ain't that a cool story??
