The snake was caught in the chicken wire we have wrapped around the back yard fence.
I called Bill and he came home VERY quickly and took care of the situation. I cannot leave the situation and I keep my eyes on the snake~from a VERY safe distance~until Bill comes home. The worry that the snake will harm an animal on the farm~or a human is something I take very serious.
If you can click on the photo you can see the chicken wire wrapped around this snake. The snake was 44" long. I am pretty wigged out as I type this as rattlesnakes do that to me.
Anyhow~two snakes in three days has not been comforting. The good news is that we are having a cold spell in the 70's with rain so I am hoping winter is around the corner. Maybe it is made up good news but this is what I am telling myself. While we were disposing of the snake was when Third called Bill about grand# 2 and the scariest day I have ever had really began. Funny how perspective makes the snake story not the scariest of the day.
