In all of her 79 years, Margaret Street had never seen a real snake until Aug. 10, when a rattler showed up on her patio.

Street, who lives on Koning Drive on the city's north side, runs a business out of her home and is nobody's idea of frail or squeamish. She doesn't mind pointing out which of her many planters the snake hid under, or where it was when she killed it with an ice chopper.

"I got him right behind the neck," she said. "I chopped three times."

Of course, that's not the first thing Street did. First, she got on the phone looking for help.

Since rattlesnakes are not native to this part of Wisconsin, she couldn't find anybody to help her and that's when she decided to take matters into her own hands.

The way this lady kept her wits about her and acted the way she did would put many younger women to shame. Most women would have panicked.
