Why I don’t do brush piles


There are lots of positives to living on a few acres of wooded land. It’s quiet and peaceful. No traffic. The sort of environment where you find deer, rabbits, turtles, wild turkeys and… snakes. (shudder) I am not fond of snakes.

This was found at the bottom of a pile of brush that the lads are clearing out today. I wasn’t there when Mark picked this copperhead up and declined his offer to "milk" the venom.

Following this little show-and-tell, the snake was dispatched with a spade. Yes, I know there’s never just one snake. [larger photo]

  1. Friend #1: Did you hear? smays.com got bit by a Copperhead and died.
    Friend #2: No shit! How the hell did that happen?
    Friend #1: They said he was trying to release the snake in a protected poisonous snake preserve. And it bit him!
    Friend #2: Wow. Why didn’t he kill the fucker? I”m just sayin’…

  2. I like snakes, and they are endangered in a lot of areas. It could have been released instead of killed. Just sayin’ . . .
