Attention All Pass Area Residents & Visitors

It is starting to get warmer outside however here in Southern California, The Inland Empire and desert beyond are the epicenter of snake bite activity.

I know we live in a prime area for various wildlife. I want to urge everyone to take precaution especially for small animals. I have seen an increase of large Hawks hovering above our yard as well as my neighbor encountering evidence of Rattle Snakes .

It is imperative to watch small animals as well as larger ones from wildlife dangers as well as other dangers.

My neighbor in North Banning Ca. area informed me this morning that he had "found 2 baby Rattle Snake sheddings on his covered cement back patio. Please protect your family and your pets. Be safe and don't look for danger. Usually it's just waiting to find us"

It is starting to get warmer outside however here in Southern California, The Inland Empire and desert beyond are the epicenter of snake bite activity.

Please be prepared ahead of time should pets become unfortunate victims.
