CottonMouth Snake In Bird Stream



Now they it’s getting warmer and water getting more scarce, my disappearing bird stream is bustling in activity.  Many birds are drinking and bathing in the stream, a raccoon comes out at night to drink, I’ve seen a few mice drop by, and the other day, a Western Cottonmouth snake.

Normally I don’t like to allow the poisonous snakes to live because I’m worried about the dogs being bitten.  However, in this case I made an exception.  Why?  Because right before I captured the snake near my bird stream, 2 little mice went running by.  If I would have left the snake alone, I bet it would have eaten at least one of the mice.  Although I didn’t kill the snake, I did toss him over the fence into the forest so it wasn’t so close to the stream.
