OMG I have to deal with several types of snakes that come into my yard pretty regularly. Moccassins mostly. I've caught three in the front yard, couple in the garage, several in the back yard. Not to mention several types of non-venomous water snakes. One even got into my house (non-venomous thankfully).
Our hous in situated right next to the swamps. My son even had a 6ft alligator in his neighborhood that was eating the neighborhood dogs.
Killed several snakes with Moss500 or Glock 26 with snake-shot. It's always a bit unnerving to run into them. The Moccassins don't run away either. One time I was going around the side of my house when we were charged by a 3ft moccassin. My grandaughter ran away screaming while I dealt with the beast.
We have to take a lot of special precautions around my house.
I can remember when I was working construction and they were escavating the side hoe came up with a big ball of snakes and I don't think there was anybody within 1000 feet of that frickin machine when we realized why the dirt looked weird

I tell you right now, I bump into that and they will find me dead of a heart attack or in jail for setting fire to the surrounding acre.
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

They need to move the Annual Rattlesnake from Opp, Alabama to wherever those pics were taken.
