A Snake in the Grass

It was actually the biggest snake I have seen living in Wisconsin.  That's not saying much, but by local standards, it was big.

The dogs are not accustomed to interacting with snakes, either as something to be avoided or as prey.  It doesn't smell like a rodent.  More importantly, it doesn't move like a rodent.  It does not have a neck, at least not in the same fashion that a rodent has a neck.  In the video below you can see how perplexed the dogs are, well, except for Stoic.

I rescued it from the dogs on two occasions but it kept on moving toward the house, and Stoic kept on finding it.  I am sorry to report that he did eventually kill it, still, little snake, I did all I could.
