One of these went into my yard drainage system and I think came out the front ditch and got run over. I am not a snake person, what is it?

Anyway to keep them away from the house/yard? Concerned since grandkids will be around this weekend. Also have a nosey german shepherd who in the last week cornered a skunk (bad news for him and us) as well as a possum last night.

Not a snake you want around with grandkids. Not trying to create fear, but from experience with this species at the lease theirs usually more than one snake. They can be very aggressive and hide themselves very well. I unzipped a pop-up blind in October and discovered 3 in the blind. If the floor wasn't bare dirt in the blind, things might have gotten interesting. Be on the lookout and be safe.

There are snake repellants you can buy like sprays and pellets. Look them up on Google or Yahoo

That was a pretty healthy copperhead. They can be aggressive and carry a pretty bad wallop. No advice other than to train the grandkids to watch where they step and to not pick up things without knowing what is under it first.

Thatís a big dude, but they do not travel in groups,, not saying there isnít more of them but this time of year they are looking to go underground. The post above is spot on, educating the GKids to be cautios is your best avenue.

Wrangler correct me if I am wrong, Copperheads are not very aggressive dang near have to step on one to get bit, usually where there is one there are more.

I have never had one "chase" me or try to strike at me if I wasn't messin with it. Most just stay very, very still and try to hide......

Cotton mouths are even more "docile".....non-venomous water snakes (especially diamond backed water snakes) act all billy-bad-azz and strike at you and even "chase" after you.....

Had one just like it under my chair one morning in a pop up blind in Brownwood. Ended up seeing several on that lease while hunting.
