Some dirt bags were at this site only a few hours before I visited it and killed two that I could see gravid black phased mothers and the babys.
Very disturbing. Thanks for reporting it. I will follow up with our law enforcement folks.
Good luck. Someone that does stuff like that is no doubt into other nefarious activities as well. Sometimes the best undercover work comes from social media or listening carefully at the local bars. They will brag about it most certainly.
I hope it works!
I contacted PFBC and talked with a WCO. I sent him the pic's. I have a couple of cheap trail cams that I am going to set up this morning. If they come back maybe I can get pics of them.
Individuals that would do something like that are the most insidious members of our society. There is no amount of education or pleading that will change their warped opinion of snakes. I would definitely contact PFBC. They will be back to finish the job, then they’ll find other rookeries. Who knows how many snakes they’ve destroyed or will be destroyed before they are caught if they ever are. 10 gravid females were killed at a site last year in a state forest, miles from being a threat to anyone who wasn’t looking for them. Unfortunately, I don’t think this is an isolated occurrence! I hope they get the bastards!!!
2nd everything Ruhe said! This is unexceptionable. Maybe next time they try it they will be caught.
