Mike Clark ~ 02/18/1950 - 10/10/2010  We Love You Daddy!

A righteous man cares for
the needs of his animal...
Proverbs 12:10

God has made us different,
he made us so unique.
We slither on the ground,
we have no hands and feet.
Though you find us scary,
or maybe just plain weird,
our intentions are not to hurt you
or cause you such great fear.
Our venom's not meant for humans
but to help us when we eat.
So, please stop the senseless killing
before we're all extinct.
We're not saying you have to love us
or tell us we're the best.
God's the one who created us.
So, treat us with respect.

Fears are educated into us
and can, if we wish,
be educated out.
-Karl A. Merringer


The snake is an animal.
It has a backbone and a heart.
It has red blood.
It drinks water and eats food.
It breathes air and feels fear
just like every other
animal in the world.
And, it's in a body that's
the hardest thing
for the average
person to understand.

 Snake Killers

People sometimes say that they will kill any snake they see because the only good snake is a dead snake. I tell them that you have to get closer to kill a snake than you do to just identify one. Their response is, "Well, I'll shoot it from a distance." Obviously, this is an uneducated person or a just plain dumb one! Let's examine this situation intelligently. Assuming you have a gun with you, hopefully, while you're aiming, you won't stumble and fall because there are over 200 deaths per year in Georgia from falling. Now, if you don't fall and kill yourself, be sure to take extra care while firing your weapon because over 1400 people die each year in the U.S. from accidental gunshot wounds. Half of all snake bites are due to a person trying to kill or capture a snake, but if you're lucky and successfully kill the snake without getting bit, you still have to drive home. Now, here is where things get scary. There are less than 15 deaths from snakebites per year in the entire nation and over 2300 deaths in the state of Georgia from auto accidents every year. If you make it home and are able to go to sleep, make sure the blankets don't cover your head during the night, because in Georgia there are 200 deaths annually from suffocation. Maybe you should remove all the blankets and plastic bags in your house just to be on the safe side. Now, as you are sleeping with no blankets you must turn the heat up a bit. Hopefully the furnace doesn't catch fire and allow you be one of the 200 Georgians that die this year from burning to death. Having trouble sleeping now? Be careful with the sleeping pills because over 300 people die each year in Georgia from poisoning.
Moral of the story - LEAVE THE SNAKES ALONE!

NEVER ATTEMPT TO KILL,
CAPTURE OR HARRASS A SNAKE.
