COVINGTON COUNTY - The annual Opp Rattlesnake Rodeo is two months away, but the deadly serpents are already on display outside city hall. In less than 24 hours, more than 30 diamond back rattlers had been turned in.
Snake handlers say they are the largest and meanest ones they have ever encountered. They think the cold temperatures are to blame.
This year’s Opp Rattlesnake Rodeo will take place on Friday, April 12th and Saturday, April 13th.
