More rattlesnakes on Southern California hiking trails this year, experts say

LOS ANGELES

Experts are warning there may be more rattlesnakes this year thanks to some heavy rains a few years ago. They said snakes are waking up from hibernation and baby snakes are hatching.

There are about 300 snakebite cases in California each year. Most bites in California happen between April and October, and they can be fatal.
