Well that’s what he tried to put on like. I stepped across a limb and about stepped on him. I poked him on the tail with a tree limb just to see if he would take off. Well he was a fighter and not a runner. He shook his tail in the leaves mocking a rattle Snake . When that didn’t work, he coiled up and rose like a big western diamond back trying to scare somebody. I had my squirrel dog pup out and took advantage of the training opportunity. I called the pup in and let him see the snake. Just as soon as he was fixed to grab the snake...old no shoulders popped him right on the nose. I was ready.....I had set my shock collar on high and timed it right. I nailed him and he thought the snake done it. It took twice, but I believe he learned something. Pretty snake. And afore the tree huggers start whining, the snake wasnt hurt at all and we left him.
