Title:
Landon Chronicles (1911-1912): Kenneth and Some Friends Caught a Snake (hour 8, clip 11)
Date:
1911-1912
Description:
The area where Kenneth and his family lived was infested with black snakes, and often the kids would find them curled up in their clothes at the river where they used to go swimming. One day one of the children caught a six-foot snake for the Barnum and Bailey circus and were bringing it to town when the creature curled around his arm and up to his neck and began squeezing him. It took many knife cuts by a farmer to help free the kid from the squeezing of the snake. (Length 4:04)
