This year seems to be a good year for the snakes. We live in the country and you expect to encounter a few slithering creatures now and again, but this year it's insane how many we have come across. Mind you, I don't have any real big issues with the hissing legless reptiles. They can actually be useful in extinguishing the rodent population around the farm. It's when I find them in the chicken coop with the guilty evidence of an egg swollen in their belly that tend to irritate me. The dear snake is then a dead snake on our property....we don't put up with any thief'n.
Then there is the not so friendly copperhead snake that coils up in the unsuspecting places ready to sink its fangs in to its next victim. That there snake is a dead'n too. You may be wondering how I get rid of those varmints. You see, I gave heir to "Annie Oakley". She's my snake killer. I rustle down the snake and she takes aim. We make a great team, so far we have eliminated 4 unworthy repitles.
The spring has only begun and we haven't even touched summer. I'll keep you posted on the adventures of the snake executioners.
