My friends Reesa and John live near Mount Clemens in Naches, and each year they battle with rattlesnakes.

Their dog Buster was recently bitten for the third time since they've had him. You would have thought once would have taught him!

I was talking with Shantel, who works at the Yakima Pet Emergency Clinic in Yakima and she was saying that the clinic has seen 20 rattlesnake bites this year compared with only five at this time last year.

Reesa has now started searching ways to keep rattlesnakes out of her yard. She found a fence that goes under her cyclone fence to keep them out, but she's not sure it will work.

How can you keep rattlesnakes out of your yard?
