Bull Snake Rescue

Last evening, a friend who was helping out around here found a mess of berry netting I had torn out of the grapes and balled up on the driveway. When he picked it up to toss it in the trash, he found two large bull snakes entwined in the netting, stuck and going to die. Luckily for the snakes, he came to their rescue with the aid of my son, two pairs of snippers and a knife. Both snakes went back to the wild. I think they might have been having an amorous encounter. Hopefully they will be successful elsewhere. Bull snakes are very territorial and will fight rattle snakes for an area(my yard
Snake 1

Snake 2

He is lightly holding the snake's head down with his boot because the angry snake wants to bite him. Not venomous, but still painful.


  1. That's the kind of snake that is living in the side yard by the garage. It has scared me multiple times in the last few weeks.

  2. And that's no bull!

    Hyuk Hyuk Hyuk!


I love to hear from you, especially if I can help with your efforts...
