Rattler in Lostine - photo

Larry Yarborough, who resides in the heart of Lostine, says he nearly stepped on this rattler that was coiled near his vehicle outside his home the night of Friday, Aug. 17. The snake was a little longer than 3 feet. Its rattle included seven sections and a button. Yarborough believes this was Lostine's first in-town encounter with a rattlesnake in several decades.
