Who’s Releasing Diamondbacks into Kansas?

I’m one of those people who don’t like snakes in general. So this story from ESPN is particularly disturbing to me.

Some knucklehead has been releasing diamondback rattlers into Kanopolis State Park. These snakes are both bigger and deadlier than native prairie rattlesnakes. In addition besides the problem of non-native species, you also have the more immediate problem of ending up very sick or dead.

There’s been at least 10 sightings of the snakes in Kanopolis. If you have any hints or ideas as to who might be releasing the snakes, call James Cherry, the local wildlife officer, at 785-658-2339.
