Heard my dog going crazy in his pen... he had it cornered and smart enough to keep his distance... Got my grabber and a shovel... and took care of business....

    Why not relocate it? They are only programed to do a few things in life... Eat, breed. and do snake stuff.

    I THINK ITS THE "SNAKE STUFF" THAT CONCERNS MOST.....SNAKE STUFF BEING BITE THE SHIT OF ANYTHING THAT MESSES WITH THEM.

    LOL, one of our Yorkers cornered a pissed off gopher snake yesterday morning, never seen a chubby little dog jump so far/fast backwards when the snake took a swing. We had one of our dogs get bit by a red diamond some years ago, very ugly long recovery.

    because it was in my dogs pen, and when they start searching for food around my house, under my back steps in harms way.. they will continue to hunt and search in that area...
    he was relocated , some other varmit will enjoy a fresh meal...

    Yeah I've head the gopher snakes come up my steps, I have my McCaw's outside cage on my 2nd story proch, the cage door is always open ( if I'm home) twice now I've encountered large gopher snake going after my McCaw.. Just lucky on booth ocaasions.
    The snake was brought downstairs and released in another part of the yard..

    not dangerous not poisonous ... simple..... wasn't coiled to strike ... I don't ever dispose of non poisonous snakes,
    my home, my property, my rules, and if you don't have to like, but I must make the decision for the best interest of my family and pets.....
    if you lived where I live you may see things in a different light...I don't enjoy the disposal of any animal or varmit or rodent... but just have to do what's best for the situation at hand...

    I have no problem with you or anyone else killing a snake, just don't hate on me if I let one live ;). I thought the video was cool and first video I've ever posted. My snake was at least 1/4 mile from nearest home.
    I don't flail dogs against fences either LOL. I liked your post and glad your dog did well.

    Thank You.... I respect what others do, if you want to let them live than so be it... I see many Rattlers on my property but I only take action when I see them as a threat ... I let most live as well, they have a purpose ..... have a great day

    Looks to me like that snake was stricken with a rare case of extreme Neck failure, leading to Decapitosis.
    Hope you buried it.
    Worms gotta eat too.
    :D
