SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (UPI) -- A 79-year-old Wisconsin woman said she used an ice chopper to kill a rattlesnake she discovered on her patio.

Margaret Street, who runs a business out of her Sheboygan home, said she spotted the snake on her patio Aug. 10 and decided to kill it herself when she was unable to contact anyone who could help her, the Sheboygan Press reported Tuesday.

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

Dale Katsma, wildlife supervisor at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, said authorities do not recommend emulating Street's actions.

"It's probably not a good idea to try to do what they did," Katsma said. "It could be dangerous, obviously. I think they were fortunate nobody got hurt."
