Wildlife

One battle I always have is a battle with mice. They get into everything and cause lots of damage, we have mice living in a car that was driven 80 miles three days a week.

I did find a friend the other day as I was getting ready to put my hay up.

I know a lot of people are afraid of snakes but these black rat snakes are great to have around, I don’t like the idea of being bitten by this guy but me guess is that it wouldn’t hurt, I was bitten by a ball python of similar size and it just felt like someone squeezed my finger with 40 grit sand paper for a moment.

The other day I went to start the truck I use to take round bales in the horse field and it didn’t start. I was surprised to hear something moving in the hood after I raised it.

In the bottom two slots you can see the belly of a snake, hope he fixes my mouse problem in the truck.

For those that hate snakes just remember, no time in history has plague ever been spread by snakes, mice in the other hand had their paws in several! On a more personal note, snakes don’t chew on wires either!
