Report
Spirit Lake Beacon
Spirit Lake, Dickinson County, Iowa
P 3 col 5 vol 12 #27
June 1, 1882



                                        Harvey Colebour killed a large rattlesnake, with 6 rattles, on the Blakely
                                        place this week. We believe this to be the first venomous reptile ever seen in
                                        the lake County




Analysis:
This is in Dickinson County. Since they give us the number of rattles this is a fairly strong report. It is the only
report I have gotten from this county. That fits with the editor saying back in 1882 that this was the only poisonous
snake known to be fund in the county. I suspect that means there were not many early on in the county.
