Re: Poisonous Snake Hiding In Toilet Bites Woman
We get black snakes that wander through through our yards every so often. Just a few weeks ago, a black snake was in our neighbor's garage. The neighbor came over to our house looking for my son who is famous for catching roving neighborhood snakes (he said he learned it from watching Animal Planet). Since he wasn't home, the duty fell to me since he neighbor was completely freaked and none of his family could go in the house till the snake was gone.
I tried first to grab him behind the head but the snake was all coiled up and p-o'ed from all the commotion (he had just been laying in the sun minding his own snake business). He tried to go behind a shelving unit and I was able to grab his tail. That sucker was *strong* and I had a hard time pulling him out. Once I got him free, I held him at arms length and the crowd that was outside the garage watching me emitted a collective shriek and the crowd parted.
The snake was still a little p-o'ed and was alternately trying to bite my leg and coil back up my arm. I kept whipping him out which kept him at arms length (literally). I finally got to the back fence where there is a field and I frisbee'ed him over the fence where he landed in a tree. A neighbor videotaped the whole thing and I didn't realize I had such an audience. Snakes just don't bother me.
Pay attention to the open sky
