Media Day for the Rattlesnake Round-Up was held on Friday morning, Feb. 17, 2012 at the Sweetwater Jaycees barn.
During the event, Jaycees showed the 2012 Miss Snake Charmer pageant contestants a demonstration of milking a rattlesnake. Jaycees were on hand to answer questions from the contestants about the snakes while helping the girls interact with the rattling reptiles.
The 2011 Miss Snake Charmer winner, Laney Wallace, began the annual tradition of decapitating and skinning the rattlesnakes, which led the way for this year's pageant contestants to also partake in the custom.
