Understand. ... Hate to see any snake killed, but with kids around I
fully understand, and unless someone has some experience or the
right equipment for catching venomous snakes, it's best not to try to
catch and relocate them...most snake bites happen when people try to
catch or kill them without the experience.
Thanks for posting the pic though... nice looking snake.
