The power company is going through our neighborhood burying all the power lines, which is a huge project and will take months. There is also a lot being cleared for a new house. Now, one of these things or both of them have caused several Copperhead sightings in the neighborhood I live in a small, older neighborhood with only a few dozen houses surrounded by a little bit of woods. I assumed these snakes would be tucked up in places or hiding in wood piles but several people have seen them chilling on their patios or driveways! I'm guessing maybe they like the heat from them? I don't know but it's freaking me out! One lady's cat was bitten a couple weeks ago and passed away I'm scared for my Frank! I think I'm going to have to start taking him out on a leash instead of just letting him go free into the yard. Snakes don't bother me too much, I've come across snakes in my garden but they were usually black or green snakes but venomous snakes! Heck no! I don't want to get bit and more than anything I don't want something to happen to my fur-baby! Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? I've never encountered a Copperhead before and right now my plan is leash walking the dog and bringing a shotgun!
