Default Should snake abuse be reported?

There is a surplus of snakes in NE and East TX. People are shooting, attacking, and mutilating innocent, helpless snakes. One man had the audacity to openly speak today about his attempts to stab a snake which had its head sticking out above ground watching the homeowner. The serpent retreated to the safety of its dwelling. Calls made to the snake for a public comment went unanswered.

It gets worse. Just recently some other guys killed numerous snakes while clearing trees with excavators and bulldozers. I'm unsure on how to proceed after hearing about these atrocities.

Such atrocities should be reported to our in-house law enforcement, Trailboss.

Here's a photo that makes Girly men wet themselves and scream like little girls ......

That juvenile Speckle King Snake makes his living eating Copperheads. Sorry you got bit by a Copperhead but you should not have killed all the king snakes.

Easy, I just put him in my shirt pocket. Released him back here at the house, he's doing just fine. Once someone learns to identify snakes they loose their fear of all snakes. Its the only way to overcome the programming your parents gave you when you were 2yrs old.

There's a bunch out right now. Saw 9 rattlesnakes out on the roads getting warm a few days ago. If I killed every snake I see I'd never get anything else done. It's counterproductive anyways. You really think killing one or two snakes is cutting down the population at all? Wrong.....another just moves in or if the population ever did get low the females would just give birth to more baby snakes. No different than coyotes or anything else. Nature has a way of balancing itself out.

Wait.... wasn't it you that stepped out of your camper barefooted one morning whilst carrying your snake boots in your hand.......

That can be the snakes fault. If you stepped on me when I was trying to take a nap I'd bite the crap outta you too!

Exactly. I first moved to Texas, I learned real quick how to identify. Still don't enjoy them being near me, but I can handle a good snake that eats the mice and other critters that are far more destructive.

It depends on how out of control the abuse is. I remember my dad telling me I would go blind when I was younger from too much of that actiivty

Yep, I was making some oval rattlesnake belt buckles. Had a pile of them on the front porch scraping the dry scales off. Phone rang and when I came back out the door the pile of buckles spooked and I sprained my ankle.

I usually let Chicken snakes go, now that we no longer have our own chickens and eggs here on the farm. And grass snakes. Cottonmouths, Copperheads and Rattlesnakes are not allowed to live in close proximity to us if they are discovered. And I do not "re-locate" them, either. Except whatever parts are re-located by 12 gauge blast.....
