REDDING, Calif. -

Western rattlesnakes are common in the Northstate. They aren't aggressive by nature, but will bite if they feel scared or threatened. The easiest thing to do if you find one on your property is to leave it alone. If you want the snake removed from your property, there are some companies that will remove it for a fee.
