A Snake’s Demise

Snake is DeadThe snake is dead. A few days ago he was found slithering along our garden and as fate would have it, the guy we hire to tend the garden every month was in the house. So it was swiftly dispatched with a bolo. I was asleep at that time.

I was contemplating whether to have this snake killed or not as i was not sure if it was really poisonous. Also, since that one time we came face to face, he turned tail and slithered away from me quickly. If this was its reaction to humans, then I found no point in trying to end its life since it meant no harm.

Information on this particular snake was something I couldn’t find in the internet so I couldn’t pass judgement right away. Looks like I don’t have to anymore.

    i read before that you can tell whether a snake is poisonous or not by the shape of its head. if it’s shaped like a python’s, hindi ata poisonous. If it’s more pointed, those are the poisonous ones, if i remember correctly ^^

    even the non poisonous ones can be deadly so better be rid of them ^^

    There was a point in time when I wouldn’t hesitate to shoot any small animal (except birds) that crossed the cross hairs of my BB gun.

    But now I’ve the realized the stupidity and wastefullness of that activity that I’ve taken to cherish all of God’s creatures with a passion.

    Utter reversal of what I once was…

    except of course for cockroaches, mosquitos and other pests… hehehe
