Cowboy Cowboy  

A cowboy on a cattle drive talking to the cook at night sees a rattlesnake crawling (looks like a Southern Pacific Rattlesnake) and says "you got a visitor." They decide to play a joke on the other cowboys. He picks it up with a stick, dropping it a couple times, (so we can see that it has a nice yellow belly) then he picks up a fake rattler - a rubber one with its mouth permanently open - and carries it over to Jack Lemmon, who runs away screaming. Another cowboy picks it up with a stick and throws it. It gets tossed back and forth until it finally wraps around the neck of a cowboy and bites him on the throat. "He got me" is the response. The boss pulls out a knife to cut and suck but changes his mind saying it must have got him in a vein. They watch him die then bury him with only Jack Lemmon demanding that somebody pay for what happened.
