What should I do if I see a snake in my yard?
A snake is more afraid of you than you are of them. If you see a snake on your property or while out walking, leave the snake alone and it will most likely leave you alone if given the chance. A snake, like any other animal, will only bite you in self defense. With this in mind, no snake should ever be picked up unless you are familiar with the proper method of handling and can identify the poisonous ones. Snakes are also beneficial to man in many ways. Several species eat rodents and insects so snakes are an important link to the environment just like other animals.
