COPPERHEAD ENCOUNTER
« on: July 06, 2015, 05:08:56 AM »
I have not seen a copperhead in over ten yrs - until a few days ago - in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I have some low shubbery that borders the sidewalk leading to my porch.
This spring , there were baby rabbits chillin under them. One day as I was cutting the grass, I spooked a 3 foot garter snake out of there. Apparently he was interested in bagging a baby rabbit.

I thought it was cool.

The next encounter was not so cool.

I found this guy lying in the middle of the sidewalk as I approached.








Normally, I would not harm any snake.
However, a copperhead lying in wait among ample cover - perfect for ambush on baby rabbits or human ankles - was totally unacceptable.

I hope it is the last copperhead I see for the next 10 years.
