The radiograph was taken locally at the Hammond Hills Animal Hospital in North Augusta. The radio-collared quail was part of a study being done at the University of Georgia Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. The graduate student’s project focuses on movement and space use of Timber Rattlesnakes, Black Rat snakes, and Northern Bobwhite Quail. While checking radio-collars on their quail, they realized one was giving off a mortality signal. When technicians arrived to the location of the collar they found the rattlesnake instead of a quail. The snake was then brought to Dr. Jason Norman at Hammond Hills Animal Hospital. The snake was implanted with a PIT tag and radio transmitter by Dr. Norman to help aid in the study. Georgia Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Resources Division confirms the snake did pass the collar and has since been released. (The round object was on the quail. The other two devices were implanted in the snake by the vet. ) https://media.graytvinc.com/images/810*703/RadiographRattlesnake.jpg https://www.wrdw.com/content/news/UGA-study-leads-to-crazy-radiograph-for-local-animal-hospital-511203001.html June 14, 2019 7:57 AM Log in to Reply xdog Clever. Let the quail tag the snake. June 14, 2019 9:07 AM Log in to Reply Benevolus Even snakes can’t get any privacy these days! June 14, 2019 8:24 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Yeah, but according to him he’s doing it to himself. “There has never been, ever before, an administration that’s been so open and transparent.” — Donald J. Trump June 14, 2019 10:04 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Sarah Sanders will be leaving the Trump administration. “She’s tough,” Trump said at an event at the White House. “But she’s good.” [snark] “She’s almost as good a liar as me. One of the best suck ups ever. It’ll be hard to find someone as good to replace her.” At least it’s not the double whammy of having to replace Kelleyanne Conway too. Republican Henry Kerner, Trump’s appointee as Special Counsel to the US Office of Special Counsel, recommended Trump fire Conway for Hatch Act violations. https://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2019/06/13/Special-counsel-Kellyanne-Conway-violated-Hatch-Act-should-be-removed/5491560442384/ That’s DOA. It’s not legally required, and for Republicans that means taking no action is ethical. Totally. Besides, Kerner worked as staff director for loser John McCain at the US Senate Homeland Security Permanent SubCommittee on Investigations, (and this next phrase is snark) and video of Kerner talking to Senator Hillary Clinton in the Capitol during that time was just shown on Fox News. But this isn’t snark: The commentary will be it’s more of the deep state plot to undermine Trump, the most transparent and best person with the best results (and in only 18 months!) to ever occupy the Oval Office. This is GOP normal. 95% of the party won’t dispute it. June 14, 2019 9:57 AM Log in to Reply Benevolus Sean Hannity “jokingly” lobbied for the job. June 14, 2019 10:51 AM Log in to Reply auh2o How upset will the opposition be when Sanders returns to Arkansas and wins the governorship? June 14, 2019 12:13 PM Log in to Reply Benevolus Why are you so obsessed with how the opposition feels? How about-Would she do a good job? Would she serve the people? Would she tell the truth once in a while? You seem to be another one whose only purpose here is to pwn the libs. June 14, 2019 1:17 PM Log in to Reply Grindelwald I won’t be upset, Arkansas needs someone that can provide forward vision while also offering another vision slightly to the right. Low blows aside, I really won’t care for who the land of finishing dead last in the SEC West elects to serve as their governor because it will have absolutely zero impact on my life. More concerning to me will be places like CNN or Harvard or other places giving her a platform for rehabilitating her image.

How much time have you taken off your life stressing out over things that have literally no impact on you? June 15, 2019 12:59 PM Log in to Reply bustercrabbe We thought the same thing about Bernie Sanders years ago. A radical socialist that even honeymooned in the Soviet Union. He was viewed as a total wacko for 40 years! Now he is the most sane of the radicals on the Socialist ticket. The article points out how this Communist is so similar to AOC! I think the Communist here is not as radical. Is this gal running round telling us we are all doomed in 12 years? ….yet millions folks are stupid and brainwashed enough to believe it. No this wacko fits in beautifully with today’s Democratic Party . At least this communist is not crying about how she lost an election. That gets old very quickly. June 15, 2019 1:52 PM Log in to Reply Benevolus Fascism would seem to be a much more imminent threat. June 17, 2019 7:49 AM Log in to Reply bustercrabbe Agree. Confiscating guns, control of the media and banning or thwarting free speech are steps in the right direction. Accusing folks that you disagree with as racists, subhuman or worse are other examples too. June 17, 2019 10:01 AM NoParty4Me Yep. Definitely auditioning for FauxNews. June 17, 2019 10:12 PM NoParty4Me Buster, are you auditioning for FoxNews? June 17, 2019 10:10 PM Log in to Reply bustercrabbe Why are the socialists and communists always democrats and not conservatives? June 15, 2019 2:00 PM Log in to Reply Grindelwald I don’t know, man. Why are the white supremacists and domestic terrorists that shoot up black churches, synagogues, and mosques always Trump supporters? June 16, 2019 11:25 AM Log in to Reply bustercrabbe It might be because they are not. What party was for slavery, the Klan, against integration and against women voting? Which one gins up racial hatred every election to get the vote out? That is almost batting 1000 isn’t it? June 17, 2019 9:57 AM Grindelwald It might be because they are not Ok, bud. By the way, I didn’t mention it earlier because I thought it rather obvious, but socialists and communists are – by definition – not Democrats. What with socialists and communists having their own political parties and everything. June 17, 2019 11:30 AM bustercrabbe You are probably right but it is almost impossible to tell the difference these days. Well the communist party USA endorses the democratic platform wholeheartedly. You can go to http://Www.CPUSA.org if you like. June 17, 2019 12:10 PM bethebalance DTM- It’s only difficult to tell the difference if you need a new pair of reading glasses. Also, if Vladimir Putin wholeheartedly endorses Trump, does that mean Trump is a communist? No need to answer- it was rhetorical. And your rhetoric hasn’t changed. Nor has your view from the fishbowl. June 17, 2019 1:11 PM Grindelwald Wait, he’s trying to convince me that Communists are Democrats by providing a link to the Communist Party website? What a weird logic pretzel that is. June 17, 2019 1:30 PM bethebalance It makes sense if the neurons in your brain are all twisted up. June 17, 2019 1:40 PM Will Durant Different name, same Democrats = socialists = communists motif. Can we assume DTM’s grandkid showed him how to mask his IP? June 17, 2019 2:14 PM Log in to Reply auh2o Four years ago Trump made his infamous escalator ride at Trump Towers. Time flies. I just heard on the radio that 150k have requested tickets for his re-election kick off. June 17, 2019 3:35 PM Log in to Reply Benevolus Wow. And I think that is conservative. I heard there were 14 million requests. June 17, 2019 4:09 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
