I know it's not poisonous but it's about 2 feet long and about 1.5 inches thick. Could be either a northern ribbon snake or a Butler's garter snake???? It's taken up residence right next to my coop and is sporting a big bulge in its belly which may explain why I found one of my girls' eggs in the dirt yesterday. I don't want to kill it and I'm too afraid to pick it up (even with my garden gloves). I would like to relocate it to the woods just down the lane from me. Any idea how I can catch it?? Thanks.
