So yesterday get home from work and go to let the girls out. I almost step on a baby cottomouth. Luckily there was a shovel near by. Off with his head!!! I really don't mind most snakes, but the poisonous ones die! Anyway today I was walking around the yard and about two foot away is the twin. I holler for someone to bring me a shovel. Off with it's head!!! That's two babies in two days. We gave already killed two adult Cottonmouths and a very large copperhead and it only April. Anyone else notice a rise in their snake population early this year?
