I took Bodie for a long walk this morning and when I went down the alley, this snake was not there. on returning I seen it. Bodie never noticed it. I thought maybe it was dead so I tossed a twig close to it's head and it moved a little. after taking Bodie in the yard, I returned but it was gone. about 6 weeks ago, something bit Bodie on his foot leaving two openings like the fangs of a small snake. it is strange that they would be seen here as they tend to be in South West Texas, New Mexico , and Mexico. maybe it was a pet and was released or escaped. Bodie licked his foot for many days, but with medicine it is almost gone.
obvious the snake is providing a method of killing mice/rats. I did not harm it
