A Monrovia animal control officer snags a rattlesnake with a pole. The snake was spotted in the grass near the entrance to Monrovia Canyon Park on Monday, Memorial Day. The officer grabbed the snake with the device, and the snake hissed and rattled as she quickly placed the four-to-five footer into the plastic container. She was going to relocate it somewhere higher up in the San Gabriel Mountains, she said.

About Steve Scauzillo

I love journalism. I've been working in journalism for 32 years. I love communicating and now, that includes writing about environment, transportation and the foothill/Puente Hills communities of Hacienda Heights, Rowland Heights, Walnut and Diamond Bar. I write a couple of columns, one on fridays in Opinion and the other, The Green Way, in the main news section. Send me ideas for stories. Or comments. I was opinion page editor for 12 years so I enjoy a good opinion now and then.
