I’ve kept four of your most recent posts in my inbox knowing I would eventually find time to savor them all at once, which I did just now. Thanks for the little bits of knowledge you share in them, along with your devotion to Nature. Your llama painting makes me smile.

I look forward to your future blog posts! Affectionately, H.

Comment on Even More on Rattlesnake Relocation by Hugh McCrystalhttp://ifnaturecouldtalk.com/even-more-on-rattlesnake-relocation#comment-8571 Sat, 21 Jun 2014 02:27:03 +0000 http://ifnaturecouldtalk.com/?p=4687#comment-8571 I have worked with fire department translocation procedures for over 25 years. We have honed our relocation procedures down to: try to talk homeowners into letting the snake stay and move on when it does. Then if that doesn’t work, 300 yards max for venomous, 100 yards max for nonvenomous. Never move a snake out of habitat. If the snake is far away from undisturbed habitat it goes to the closest “best” habitat. We also carefully keep snakes from getting overvheated, release them onto sheltered spots from the elements, are careful to be gentle in how they are handled. We try to educate folks about what snakes really do, and for the most part, it works. The hardest part is getting the word out to firefighters such that there is consistency. Keeping release distance very short is critical to individual survival and not impacting other nearby family groups negatively.
