Snake Man theme song

All Snake Killers

God has made us different,
he made us so unique.
We slither on the ground,
we have no hands and feet.
Though you find us scary,
or maybe just plain weird,
our intentions are not to hurt you
or cause you such great fear.
Our venom's not meant for humans
but to help us when we eat.
So, please stop the senseless killing
before we're all extinct.
We're not saying you have to love us
or tell us we're the best.
God's the one who created us.
So, treat us with respect.

Fears are educated into us
and can, if we wish,
be educated out.
-Karl A. Merringer

A righteous man cares for
the needs of his animal...
Proverbs 12:10

The snake is an animal.
It has a backbone and a heart.
It has red blood.
It drinks water and eats food.
It breathes air and feels fear
just like every other
animal in the world.
And, it's in a body that's
the hardest thing
for the average
person to understand.

 Curiosity Killed The Cat 

Due to recent reports of dogs and other family pets being injured or killed by snakes we decided to give some information regarding snake bites and pets. Please give us a little time to finish this section. In the meantime here's a little tid bit!

How does that old saying go? "Curiosity killed the cat." It also kills dogs. From what I've seen, dogs have no natural fear of snakes. When a dog encounters a snake it instinctively wants to investigate. How do dogs investigate? They go over and smell the snake! This is why we receive so many calls about dogs being bitten on the nose, head and face area. Dogs that survive a snakebite may not consider a snake something to be avoided because the painful effects of the snakebite may or may not be immediate. If the dog ever encounters a harmless snake and receives a bite, this may not be enough to deter him from sniffing to close to the next snake it encounters which could be a rattler. The harmless snake bite is not connected with a painful experience which teaches the dog that it is okay to approach a snake. To instill fear of snakes into a dog, you need to teach him that snakes equal pain. This is often done by allowing a leashed dog to approach a snake from a safe distance. While always keeping the dog out of strike range, you administer a shock using a standard dog shock collar. This shouldn't take more than a couple of times to insure that your dog does not want to sniff a snake!
