Protecting reptiles on the roadway

Protecting reptiles on the roadway
Mike Barcaskey

By the time I had brought my truck to a entire cease, I realized what was taking place.

A motor vehicle was stopped in front of me and the driver was standing in the opposing lane of visitors attempting to “shoo” a massive snake off the two-lane street. Inside a make a difference of 10 seconds, three other automobiles stopped and the snake rescuer wasn’t making any development. So out of the truck I jumped to set a rapid finish to the predicament.

As I picked up the eastern rat snake, one of the other motorists waiting in his car or truck yelled “Get out of the way and I’ll operate it above!” 

Yeah, like that would at any time happen.

This is a substantial issue of the year for snake exercise. Not only are we in the center of the mating period, but the heat asphalt soon after a great evening is just what a chilly-blooded animal demands to rev up his engines. This 7 days, I have moved two rat snakes off the highway, my son moved a person and I was seconds as well late for yet another as it was in its demise throes as I drove by.
