This sucks! I'm totally not liking this kind of web-search instigated advertising/linking.. Who the heck cares if somebody big or small kills another snake?! My 5-year old nephew can kill snakes with a #5 iron!.. Keeping them alive and learning to live with them in nature is what adults do.. and what the herp hobby and culture is all about.. Shame on Kingsnake and shame on Barringer himself for allowing this kind of crud..
.
That's what I think. Adios!

I am really not sure what upsets you here. I was pretty upset with the article as I thought I exhibited in my first part of the blog.


It is my opinion that with these stories, it glorifies the harming of native wildlife and with this story, portrays someone as a hero for doing such a heinous act. I am sorry that those views did not come across clearly. I am of the belief that when someone is hailed a hero, it encourages future behavior and that is something I and I would assume the rest of our community feels very much against in this case.
