This little guy attacked my 6'3" husband.
So my hubby was outside mowing the lawn and all of a sudden this snake attacked him. Needless to say the snake got beheaded. lol My hubby is very scared of snakes and doesn't like to take chances. I would have done the same thing. Our little boy plays on the yard and loves to run on the grass so we don't like taking chances. Better safe than sorry.
Then we found out from our neighbors that we also have foxes that come around. And I've seen rabbits. We have a nature preserve behind our house so that's where they are coming from. :)
