January Jones says that she was ‘forced to bludgeon yet ANOTHER rattlesnake’ at her home…after her dog Vinny recovered from a bite
January Jones revealed that she was ‘forced to bludgeon yet ANOTHER rattlesnake’ in a video posted to her Instagram Story on Friday.
The 43-year-old actress shared a duo of videos that showed her capturing one of the venomous animals underneath a butterfly catcher while she kept her distance from the reptile.
The videos come not long after she revealed that her dog Vinny was recovering at home after the pooch was bit by a rattlesnake on Wednesday morning.
Another one?! January Jones revealed that she was ‘forced to bludgeon yet ANOTHER rattlesnake’ in a video posted to her Instagram Story on Friday, just days after her dog was bitten by one of the venomous animals
In her first video, Jones’ son Xander, aged nine could be heard enthusiastically encouraging his mother to get rid of the reptile, which she later did off-screen.
After dealing with the pest, she later added a text graphic to another Story entry that read: ‘Lemme know if anyone needs a snake wrangler.’
Prior to sharing the videos, the Mad Men actress posted a picture of Vinny to her Story to let her fans know that her dog was ‘tired out but doing well’ after being treated for the snake’s bite.
Earlier this week, the performer revealed on her Instagram account that her pet had to take a trip to an animal hospital after an encounter with a rattler.

Posting a photo of the cold-blooded reptile to her account, January revealed, ‘This baby rattler bit my lil Vinny this morning. I caught and released it but praying for my pup who’s in the hospital now.’
She also shared a photo of her furry black dog, presumably taken prior to the incident, as he sat upon the floor wearing a red vest.
Vinny appears to be one of two dogs owned by January.
In addition to Vinny, January owns a fluffy cream pooch named Joey, who makes occasional appearances on Instagram alongside his brother.

On top of caring for two dogs, January is also raising her son by herself.
For personal reasons, January has never publicly revealed the identity of his father.
She talked about his birth in an interview with Red magazine in 2017, saying: ‘My younger sisters and my mom and my doula were in the room; my brother-in-law and my dad were next door.
‘I only wanted women with me,’ the celebrity said, adding, ‘it was a 30-hour process but it was awesome. I’d love to do it again.’

January has been raising Xander as a single mother, and does not feel the urge to be in a relationship.
‘I just don’t feel I need a partner,’ she recently told Red Magazine.
Outside of quarantining at home with her son and furry friends, January has remained a presence on the small screen.
After ending The Last Man On Earth in 2018, January continued her run on small screens with appearances in the Netflix shows The Politician and Spinning Out.
Next, she will star opposite Jamie Foxx and Maika Monroe in the crime drama God Is A Bullet.
