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 →

Arnel, actually in the USA there are many places that Land Surveyors ARE allowed to carry a firearm.  Alaska is a prime example, since most of them (if not all) do carry.  I agree with the short shotgun being the best choice!  I have only shot one poisonous snake, but it was with a pistol.

Hi Scott! Thanks for the link. How I wish there is such thing as snake repellent. If only surveyors are allowed to carry firearms then short shotgun is I guess a big help. But then again, unreasonable killing of wildlife is not permitted.

Arnel, this is the best I can find in the USA for killer bees:

We need to invent a snake repellent - or has that been done?  Perhaps a pistol?

Another very real threat is killer bees. There are death accounts recorded in places where we do surveying. Do you have guys any idea on how to provide protection against bee attack? Thank you.

King Cobra is unfortunately aggressive in nature. This snake attacks if you cross his borders. In one of my projects in 2000, one of my crew was almost bitten. He got fever afterwards and resigned the following day.

A King Cobra?  I am fortunate to be outside the range of these:

In addition to insurgency in our place, one of real threats is the King Cobra. One of my crew was attacked but fortunately he was able to subsconsciously slap the huge snake with his mighty Leica prism/pole and ran away. Fortunately, he was able to do the speedy gonzales thing...

Ronnie,

You are correct. The mosquito is definitely not the most dangerous animal on the planet.  HUMANS are!

be careful also with the animal with a gun adjoining owner of your client's lot. Have a fun day guys. God bless.
