It is illegal to harass, kill, collect or possess the following snakes in Massachusetts: Timber Rattlesnake - Copperhead - Eastern Hognose Snake- Black Rat Snake - Worm Snake  In Texas we kill before we get killed [rolleyes] [url]http://www.umass.edu/umext/nrec/snake_pit/pages/prot.html[/url]

More tree hugging, greenie, liberal crap. This document states no exception for defending yourself against the snake.

No need to kill. Just vote them out of office the next time.

Other than the rattlesnake or copperhead, why would you WANT to kill a snake? Hell I've been bringing snakes home ever since I was just a kid. Living in Florida I've had them all. If one feels threatened, by all means, defend yourself but don't shoot them for no reason.

I think I like PbRx's reply better than mine.

Why kill them at all? Leave them alone, what the hell are snakes doing? Are you really affraid of snakes in the first place? Yeah, if you find yourself in the uncommon position where a dangerous snake is in your immediate living area, lop its head off. Other than that, maybe people should try to actually understand that hysteria and fact are not the same thing. Anyone have any stats on the waves and waves of snake victims in MA?

Well, the Kennedy clan was dropping like flies before they passed that law. In NC (the Massachusetts of the south) - it is illegal to kill any non-game vertabrate. Funny, but they haven't banned the sale, manufacture, or importation of mouse traps yet, though they clearly are built, and marketed for illegal purposes. Why even felons can buy them in grocery stores without a background check, and the only picture you have to show is George's.

[b][red]I am going to assume Observer is in Grade school and I'd be Jailed for bitch slapping his punk ass... :rolleyes: [/red][/b] All poisonous snakes should be eradicated if found... You don't want to go thru the pain that awaits you from a snake bite.. Hell, the anti venom is sometimes worse to your body that the venom itself. realist out

How dare you! Snakes have rights too. Remember: a snake = dog = a child

Hell, out here in the desert , you go quail hunting in early October and you're likely to kill more rattlesnakes or sidewinders than you SEE quail. Our motto "the only good snake is a DEAD one'.

I gotta go with Dr. Jones on this one. I hate snakes.

Does waving a mouse in the face of a snake, constitute harassment? How about taunting? NA, NA NA, NA, NA!
Link Posted: 7/13/2002 2:29:39 PM EST
Obviously, snakes are more important than people. They have rights too. Massachusetts really sucks.

Don't kill all the snakes..... just kill all the snakes you see.
Link Posted: 7/13/2002 4:16:40 PM EST
Considering the population of poisonous snakes in Mass(about 5 in the entire state)... I'd say rattler hunting is a pretty lonely sport there... I, however, may shoot brer rattler... Since I'm still peeved about being bit in 99... Yes, the antivenom can be worse... I'm allergic to anything containing horse serum... Damned near died from that one... big

What's so bad about this? It specifically says in the article that the snakes are endangered. If someone does find themselves in the uncommon situation where a snake threatens your life and you have to kill it, I doubt the Massachusetts animal police will knock at your door.

No, king snake is not venomous, but looks kinda like a coral snake. The order of the colors is different, and there is a jingle to remember them, as quoted by P806 above. And you left one particularly vile snake off the list of poisonous North American snakes: lawmaker

We've had 3 snakes as pets, two were a M&F pair. All three broke out, and I decided it just wasn't worth it. One day, I heard the neighbor lady going apeshit -- Snakeomigodkillitkillitsnakesnakekillitgetitg­etit Poor little guy never even saw 1'.

Killing a snake is just pure dumb unless it is dwelling in your immediate home or yard. I don't think I have ever heard of a snake spreading disease? Who among us loves rats so well as to trade 1 snake for 30 rats? Rats suck!! Most people that I have met, that dislike snakes feel the same way about bats, and I say, I like bats a hell of a lot better than mosquito's! Snakes and bats = less rats and mosquitos!
