So I come home today and find a 5 gallon pail with a lid on it on my driveway. The lid was held down with a chunk of firewood, and a note from my neighhbor which read: "Caution! Big snake inside! 10 foot!"
That's odd, I think.
I nudge it, and something inside it moves.
Yep. Definitely odd.
So I cautiously pop the lid and I look inside.
Yep...it's a snake. It's black, so I'm guessing that it's a black snake. Because it's black. It's only about 6 feet long though. It doesn't look happy.
I let Murphy check it out. He cautiously peered into the pail and jumped back as if to say: "Oh, HELL no!"
So I took it out and turned it loose by some big rocks on my land.
Now it's presumably happy. The blue jays, however, have yet to stop screaming.
Now I have to figure out what to get my nice neighbor in return. Anyone got a spare skunk they're not using?
