In the small town of Sweetwater, Texas, a controversial event happens every year, which brings about forty thousand visitors to this town that's populated with ten thousand residents. The Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup was created to keep control of the growing number of rattlesnakes that call home to farmlands, pasters, and cattle ranches.
