Saturday my son-in-law William spotted a snake at the pond. Daughter Emily captured this photo of it. You can see its head in the middle of the photo.
Granddaughter told William she wanted to hold it. She showed no fear.
I'm not sure what kind of snake this is. Anyone recognize it?
On Monday, what did I find in the garage?
The snake caught in the mouse trap!
I contemplated leaving it for Dan to dispose but then took a shovel to move it out only to discover it was still alive.
I managed to release the trap without getting my hand close and it wriggled away.
This is the second time we have caught a snake in a mouse trap. The first one wasn't so lucky.
