Snake Rescuers Plead, “They Won’t Hurt You!”

Snake Rescuers Plead, “They Won’t Hurt You!”

My husband and I do free educational snake programs and we will also rescue nonvenomous snakes from people’s yards or help them to identify snakes. A few weeks ago, I got a call from a lady who said she had a small snake in her yard and she was afraid it was a rattlesnake. I told her that a pointy tail in Los Alamos County indicates a nonvenomous snake but she couldn’t tell if the tail was pointy. When we got there, her husband had put it in a container and the poor thing was half dead and very dehydrated (it hadn’t rained in weeks). The reason the lady couldn’t give me info about the tail was she said the snake had gotten run over by a bike (I suspect her kids?) and the tail was mangled.
