    Walked up about 3-4 feet from this one before I saw it. The bulge sticking out of it was a baby rabbit.

    Two quotes come to mind: (1) Your eyes were bigger than your Stomach and (2) Never bite off more than you can Chew.

    I dont mind killing any venomous snake. There are plenty of non-venomous to keep the rats at bay. Cotton mouth moccassins feed on frogs and fish mostly and I like my frogs and fish better than the snakes. I have a good sized garter snake living in my wifes flower bed that keeps the insects at bay so I let him be even though it scares the pee out of her occassionally when she sees it.

    well guess it's up to us to chose what we like & don't like to kill. guess the only good venomous snake's a dead one....glad we now all live in a safer world.

    It was coiled up right where I needed to fix the fence. Also there are lots of these in this field and they are usually very aggressive.

    Amen--- A lot of needless suffering to both man and beast would be the result.
