I now have sad news to relate about Sneaky Snake. It seems that he went several houses down to an Idiot Neighbor's chicken coop. Idiot Neighbor doesn't have the coop completely closed in to protect his chickens, it is wide open. He couldn't get his hens to go back in the coop and finally found the snake in the dark coop. Idiot Neighbor called Good Neighbor who had killed a large copperhead in his own yard several weeks prior. Good Neighbor hurried over with his shotgun. Good Neighbor shot the snake, then fished him out of the coop where he could get a good look at the snake. He was terribly upset that he had killed a rat snake. Idiot Neighbor didn't know why and Good Neighbor explained that Sneaky Snake ate mice and gophers. He told Idiot Neighbor that he needed to enclose his coop to keep the snakes out and that from now, he was on his own. I was very upset to hear that Sneaky Snake met an untimely end.
