The Topsail Rattlesnake Story Appears to be False

Thanks to Barry Summerlin who left a comment in the earlier post, I was able to do a Google search with the information he provided and came across this Georgia newscast dated August 13, 2010. According to the news story, the snake in question was killed by Nick Kearns(sp) while hunting with a friend in Screven County on the Savanah River.

The original photo on Facebook connecting the snake to Topsail appears to have been re-posted by hundreds of other people so I imagine the story will become a Topsail urban legend and will remain in dispute for many years. With that said, we'll now return to our regularly scheduled Pleasure Island postings.

Here are some additional photos posted in Gerogia Outdoor News forum dated July 17, 2010.
