EEEKKK!! I shot my first snake of the season *PIC*

Posted by   + Show Post

     I cannot believe that I shot this thing while I was standing on my front porch!! We smoke outside, so I was going to smoke a cigarette, and this is what I saw. We're used to seeing copperheads, rattlesnakes, black racers, etc. but I have never personally seen any snake this long (though I know they are out there). For those wondering, I now know that this is a coachwhip (they'll chase you!!) and from what I've been told, they eat mice and such. I don't care...a snake is a snake to me...other than a king snake of course. The funny thing is, my mom kept telling me "Shoot it again! Shoot it again!!" When I went out later to water my plants, I noticed that in the process of shooting this snake, I shot the water line coming under the trailer from our kitchen sink. I was so worried my dh was gonna be pissed at me, but he was really great about it and fixed it as soon as he got home.

I am not believeing how hateful some of you "women" can be, over a fucking snake. I've seen some REAL STUPID posts on CM, and alot of bashing (mostly by the same people everytime) , but this takes the cake. You'd think I posted a pic of child porn or something.

Right. This one was at the bottom of my steps. I've actually gone out my back door to my porch and stepped over a copperhead, not knowing until I stepped back over it to go inside. It had gotten on my porch and was lined up below my door, so I didn't see it till I looked down to make sure the rug wasn't in the way. That was scary and I do believe I got lucky.

Quoting momswag:

We live in the country, I have two kids and a dog. They're never outside alone but that doesn't mean a snake or other dangerous critter couldn't get to them before I could get them away from it. While I'd rather remove a snake like a rat snake (since they serve a purpose) the one I killed was right by my door on my front porch, that is totally different then it just being out in the yard. 

I think most don't understand that this is apart of country living, it's not for the fun or sport of it, it's a part of safety. 

Quoting Bozo75:

That's exactly what I'm saying. I will not have my childrens' safety compromised because "killing a snake is wrong." If it is near my house, it's gone, no questiona asked.



Quoting momswag:

I killed my first the other day, it was just a rat snake (about 3.15 feet) but it was RIGHT by the front door as we were walking up the drive and it was night. I grabbed a cut off two by four that was by the garage, held it on it's head and then took out my blade and cut it's head off. 

I live in the country, snake are EVERY where and I'm fine with them as long as they don't come up by the house. My kids and dog come first.

lol ok?..

Yes, those people are all sick... as is the mother that tells a random stranger to go play in traffic....

Quoting Bozo75:

To each their own. The man who molests little children is sick. The mother who smokes crack and has sex with multiple men while her babies starve is sick. And now I am beginning to think you are. Go troll someone else.

Quoting Bozo75:

THANK YOU to all my fellow "retards" for understanding why I shot a snake on MY property with a gun that I have LEGAL access to and plenty of knowledge about!!! LMAO at the people who are all bent out of shape about the innocent killing of a snake. You don't like it? Don't read the post, go somewhere else.

Was that animal agressive?

Were you scared of it attacking you?

Was there no way to go back inside?


There's just no reason to murder an animal if you are in no danger...

It's sick.

Your screen name is very appropriate.


Quoting Bozo75:

The snake wasn't shot "for the fuck of it." I target shoot "for the fuck of it." If I don't like snakes and feel threatened by them, it's my choice to handle it how I see fit. I know the difference and I know they keep rodents away. I don't care though, because I don't like snakes. Report me to animal control.



Quoting Paperfishies:

I usually dont give two shits about animals, for the most part...but I agree shooting a snake for the fuck of it is stupid...snakes serve. A purpose unlike deer or rabbits...snakes keep rat/mice populations under control. Just stupid.



Quoting samurai_chica:

I feel bad for the snake. I don't think anyone should shoot any animal unless it actually poses a threat. Shooting innocent animals unless you plan on eating it, seems like a white trashy thing to do...

I don't understand why you would shoot it...what the heck is it going to do to you? Why are you so scared of something that cannot harm you?
