Hello Dana. Understand your concern for the children! Perhaps the conservation agency can remove a snake if shows up again, to a more remote location? Anyway, as I reported "U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Initiates Status Review of the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake" @ http://www.fws.gov/southeast/news/2012/0...

Yes it was. In yard where babies play. Unless something has changed overnight...I show where this species is of least concern on conservation status. They're pretty abundant here.

Was it then killed? This species Crotalus adamanteus is being evaluated for listing under the Endangered Species Act.
