Jan. 24 (UPI) -- An amateur rattlesnake wrangler was filmed capturing a venomous snake he found slithering uncomfortably close to where his children were playing.
A video posted to YouTube by the owner of Texas landscaping company Midtex Mulching shows the filmer's brother using a shovel to pin down a rattlesnake the men found near the home were the amateur snake catcher's children were playing.
"This is my crazy brother," the filmer says as the other man picks up the snake by its head and loads it carefully into a bag.
"Because everyone knows someone they'd love to give a rattlesnake to," the filmer wrote. "Who would you give a snake in a sack to? By the way, the snake was moved and released unharmed a couple hours later. My nieces and nephews were playing in the area and we wanted the snake moved so we relocated it to another area farther from the house."
