SNAKE

There's a snake stuck in the netting dh is using to protect the plants from the birds and bunny!  I want to let it loose but it's in there pretty good.  I'm scared he'll try to bite us though.  I don't know what to do, ugh!

Ewwwww......I wouldn't know what to do either. I hate snakes, but I wouldn't want it suffering. How big is it? Lani's idea of long handled sissors makes sense.

No, I really don't have any.  I have hedge clippers but I don't think that will work.  I don't know how he was even able to get in between the small squares in the first place.

Yeah, that's how I feel.  I don't want it to suffer but I also don't want dh to get bit.  I can't tell how big it is exactly because it's head and tail are sunk down between the deck boards.  I'd like him to live and eat the mice but I don't see how that can happen :/ Poor thing.

Shoot it! Or use a shovel to chop it! That's what we do at my parents house. Lol snakes do not bother me too much.

It's dead thankfully but I didn't want it to suffer but I waited too long.  There was NO way to free it though.  If you know what the netting looks like then people would know why.  UGH!
Snakes are bothering me less and less like scorpions do.
