It was getting in the bird's nest and eating their babies. When I got there, there was one in the snake's mouth. Let's just say, it didn't get to enjoy it's meal. I know your not suppose to kill these big black snakes, I know they are great for rodent control and all, but I enjoy my birds a lot more than I enjoy the snakes. So one of them had to go. I picked the scaly thing. He was getting a little too close to the "teenage" chicks for my taste anyway. So bye,bye, black snake.
So until next time,

P.S. Before you start making comments about why I shouldn't have killed the snake and should have "rehomed" it, go find your own black snake to rehome. This one is dead. End of story.
