I HATE SNAKES OF ANY KIND

Normally we don’t see many snakes at the farm but this year Sassy and Gyp have had encounters with two big blacksnakes and they were mean.  You can by looking at the pictures that the dogs kept their distance.  This one hubby found coming around the back of the house.

Lots of people won’t kill snakes because they supposely keep away poisonous snakes but believe me folks that’s a lot of   “blahooey”.  We seen them together at the home we lived at when the kids were growing up.  We’ve found them in the hen house full of my chicken eggs.  They’ve killed my little chickens.  Hubby found this one in one of the storage buildings that had a broken window.  I would have had a heart attack if I had walked in on this and I think it scared him pretty good too.  He came and got me so I could take these pictures.

As far as I’m concerned, the only good snake is a dead snake!!  I’ve said my peace!!  The dogs don’t like them either!
