Resources for many of my rants.

Why you should call a professional snake wrangler to handle a snake "problem", instead of the police:
CNN Article: "Cop Shoots at Snake, Kills Boy, 5"
"NOBLE, Oklahoma (AP) -- A police officer shooting at a snake apparently killed a 5-year-old boy who was fishing at a nearby pond, officials said..."

Why you shouldn't harm a snake:
National Geographic Article: "Save the Scales?--Experts Push for Snake Protection"
"Snakes—the dry and scaly reptiles who strike fear in the human soul—may be slithering unnoticed toward extinction, warns a team of scientists."

Endangered/Threatened Reptiles:
USFWS Threatened and Endangered Species System (TESS)
