Everything is BIGGER in Texas!  

Guest Blogger~~Sister-in-law
This happened a year ago or so, but I thought that is was interesting.....
Patterson Drilling, Abilene, TX was doing some cleanup around the yard. The forklift driver picked up a “pit” (10 ft by 10 ft by 15 ft), set it back down and called the office. “I need some people out here with shotguns”. Three men showed up. As many got away as were killed----62."
To me a Snake is a Snake no matter what kind, and since I have kid's I really don't want them around and would rid of them in any way possible. One thing that is great, is that we have a bulldog that handles most of our snake problems. So far we have only encounter one 5ft bull snake, and a 7" garder snake. These were handled by Peso "the snake dog". There is still alot of summer left for the Rattlers to come out and play... Have a Great snake free day!

What next?

    Well I am from Texas but grew up in Dallas...so mostly only 2 legged snakes there. However, I am now in Oklahoma and we have a pond on our property...so I do occasionally run across snakes..but, we use geese and ducks...they work very well also. Us westerners have to be tough!!
    Oh yes I can't find where I have been tagged. help a numb blond out here. Thanks~jackie
