I have bats behind the second story shutters on my house. I can't have them legally removed due to them being considered endangered or something. So,
I've had to live with guano on the ground endangering my family's health.
Anyway, this morning, my son calls me and tells me to come outside. There's a 3.5 ft. snake trying to get behind one of the shutters to get the bats.
The snake actually bites of a pretty good size sliver of shutter and eats it to be able to get behind it (they're wood shutters). So, I call our
city's animal control. They send the city police (apparently animal control only works Monday - Friday). The police get here and my dog goes to greet
them (not barking, only sniffing their shoes) and they immediately freak and tell me to control my dog, lol. I guess they don't want dogs sniffing
their shoes, so, I put him in the house.
I take them around to the shutter in question and show them the snake (half in half out). They're afraid of snakes so they call the animal control
person on duty who tells them that, if the snake is on the second story, then they can't get it because they're not allowed to climb.
So, then, I ask my son to get our 30 ft ladder and ask the police to let me borrow their snake stick. I'm going to do it myself at this point. That's
when they tell me that I can't borrow their stick because they can't condone me climbing my own ladder on my own property using only their stick to
get a snake that they're too chickensh*t to get themselves.
Worthless! I'm just glad they didn't shoot my shoe sniffing dog.
