JANUARY Jones has revealed her terror as she was forced to “bludgeon” a rattlesnake in her garden to stop it harming her dog for a second time in a week.
The Mad Men actress, 43, took to her Instagram Stories to detail the horrifying follow-up event in her picture-perfect yard.
She captured her patio set up complete with trendy mug and coffee table, and a coveted swinging egg chair.
Yet followers could also spot her standing alongside a blue net, containing the snake, with the mom of one gently prodding the handle with her foot.
South Dakota native January was armed with a bat in case the serpent decided to sneak out.
Alongside, January wrote: “Right before I was forced to bludgeon yet another rattle snake today.
“I almost cried.
“I’m sorry snake family, this house is taken.”
The Golden Globes nominee later gave an update on her adorable black bernedoodle pup, who was bitten by a similar creature on Wednesday, and added a snap of him lying on a blanket.
She wrote: “Vinny’s back home.
“Tired out but doing well.”
Rattlesnakes are venomous and often found in North and South America.
January first revealed her dog was bitten by a “baby rattler” on Wednesday, with a post to her account.
Uploading a photo of the snake, she wrote, “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 ❤️.”
In addition to Vinny, January is a dog mom to goldendoodle Joey.
Meanwhile, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife recommends owners leash their dogs when hiking in snake country as “dogs are at increased risk of being bitten due to holding their nose to the ground while investigating the outdoors.”
They added: “Speak to your veterinarian about canine rattlesnake vaccines and what to do if your pet is bitten.”
