Old West Shootout–with a Rattlesnake

Old West Shootout–with a Rattlesnake

An Old-West Shootout occurred near the Copper Queen Mine, to the south-west of a town called Salmon, Idaho. A fight for survival between the owner of the Copper Queen Mine and his attacker–a six-foot rattlesnake sporting sixteen rattles.

Identified (by Pinterest pinner) as Salmon, Idaho. My guess: turn of the century (circa 1900). Image: Pinterest.

Where is Salmon, Idaho?
