WEST CORNWALL — James Saunders sent an email on July 30 with a photo of a rattlesnake and the following explanation.

“I live in West Cornwall and have been reading The Lakeville Journal for 35 years. I have seen and read photos and stories of animals in your paper over the years. We have bears on the property and have seen bobcats and a mountain lion. 

“Today I saw something new: this rattlesnake on West Cornwall road, halfway between Sharon and West Cornwall.”

Hikers are warned that rattlesnakes are relatively plentiful in the Northwest...

There, a deep-seated native culture thrives despite a lack of access to nutritious food, convenient health care and what seems to be a high propensity for alcoholism.
