there is no records even close to that weight, not to mention, this is a diamond back you are talking about. they don't get even close to that size. it's all bs to grab a headline.

The photo and story are fake ... but it is a fact that Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnakes DO most certainly live in KY, along with the smaller timber rattlesnakes. My forester who encounters them all too often, reports seeing one that was longer than the ridge road was wide and the ridge road is 8' wide. I have captured and moved 8 timber rattlesnakes this summer alone and they all ranged from 4 to 5 feet in length and 10 - 11 inches in circumference ... I didn't weigh them. I also do not kill rattlesnakes and hghly recommend that nobody kills one. They are not aggressive toward humans or livestock and they are becoming rare due to the fact that they do not reproduce until they are 9 years old and then only about every three years. Live and let live!

Excuse me!!??!! But I know Becky personally. How dare you talk about someone that I'm sure you don't even know!! I am sure you think this is funny, however it is not. She is not a fat a$$ as you put it, she is acutally thin so do not slander someone like that just to be funny. She is the 1 of the kindest people I have ever been lucky enough to meet! My son takes music lessons from her and I couldn't ask for a kinder more Christian woman to be his teacher. She did see a snake at her house, however it was just some type of harmless brown or black snake and her husband took care of it.
I, unlike you, am not scared to hide behind an alias on the computer. It's very easy to slander someone when you can do it anonymously, isn't it??? Shame on you!!
She should beware of Whitesnakes..ha ha ha

Kentucky has timber rattlesnakes ONLY, except for the little Pygmy rattler.
