10:30pm and I'm sitting here at the kitchen table when all of a sudden I hear a mouse trap snap. I go over to check it out and over in the darkened
corner by the back door I see the last couple feet of a really large snake slither behind a small piece of sheetrock laying against the wall by the
basement door. WHOA! I jump back and go grab the flashlight. I get back and he's gone. Where'd he go?? I pop open the basement door and there his
is! ALL SIX FEET OF HIM!!!
You have to look twice at bullsnakes because they look almost identical to a rattler, but I checked him three times. He was a bullsnake for sure.
Now, even a bullsnake can give a fella a pretty good chomp (though not poisonous, they can get infected pretty bad). Now I had to figure out how to
get him out of the house, hopefully without injuring him.
Chased him all the way down the basement stairs and across the basement. Along the way I found a 3' long piece of 2x2 and that's all I had plus the
light to see him. I managed to keep him from going under something where I couldn't get him (which is EXACTLY what he wanted to do!! I finally
managed to stop him long enough to pin him, then grabbed him by the base of the head and picked him up and took him outside and let him go.
I think Mr. snake was kinda pissed off about that deal, but at least he got to live and kill more mice for us!
Pretty crazy looking up and seeing a six foot long snake tooling across your kitchen floor!!
