hail chicken folk!

we had been plagued by the below rat snake for a couple months now. he was eating as many eggs as he could get his...hands? on. last night we managed to capture and relocate him using a kind of "lasso" formed from a loop of nylon rope through a pvc pipe. if you're interested and/or bored, the full story is here:

i hope this helps or heartens anyone dealing with a serpentine egg thief. and gosh i hope he was the only one!

cheers, and have a lovely day!
