ABSTRACT
Since the last Ice Age, every spring timber rattlesnakes have glided down from their den atop Kongscut Mountain in Connecticut via the same path, to hunt for food & then, each fall, crawled back up the mountain to hibernate. Now residents of a new development of homes on the Glastonbury, Ct., mountain are killing this endangered species which, they say, threatens their own safety.
