Who has had a bad encounter with a wild animal or a "domesticated" animal, such as a bull, hog, ram, or stallion?  I have had a few close calls, but I am thinking your experiences are probably more…Read more →

What about dangerous dogs?

What about dangerous dogs?  The mailman isn't the only one who looks at a dog as more of a threat than a pet.  Land Surveyors have to enter more parts of properties guarded by dogs than any other…Read more →

Cujo, interesting thought - not deadly to humans, but a dead coke can could mean a dead snake, too.  By the way, which Lafayette are you in?

has anyone considered the use of airsoft rifles for snake control? they are not deadly but a good one will go through a coke can.... unopened. The full auto feature is a plus.....

I am actually considering dogs. At least dogs are good early warning facility. :) Wow! Mongoose is the best protection..

If I ever need to work in King Cobra territory, I think I will bring a few trained Mongoose with me.  :)

In the tiny mind of a snake, stepping on territory may be equal to stepping on snake.

When King Cobra is threatened, she uses her migthy height standing up as tall as a normal height person. That's pretty scary!! Don't wait to step on her. You better run (speedy gonzales) away!

Pleast take it from my experience and better change your mindset regarding cobra only attacks when harmed. Just a word of caution.

Cobra attacks when threatened particularly when you're very near to her nest. King Cobra on the other hand has broader territory. It attacks when you cross her wide boarders. In addition, it attacks even not threatened if she sees a single person. It attacks even to a group of people when the group is very near to her nest. Your information regarding King Cobra is not accurate for that matter. You better take it very seriously when surveying along river banks particularly nearby bamboo trees.

from experience these animals dont attack when not threatened, they are afraid more than us people, they are just as defensive as we are. they will bite if you step on them. God bless.

The problem with a hand pistol is you need lots of practice before shooting precision and accuracy develops. I don't know if you were able to hit that snake when you fired at him. :)
