I read the article about the “Attack of the Yarn Bomber” and I wonder if the artist knows her outside works of art could be a death trap for snakes?
Snakes can get into the knitted yarn but because of their scales, they can become trapped in the yarn and strangle themselves.
This landscaping and bird netting is similar to the yarn.
Perhaps you don’t think either are deadly to some forms of wildlife but a picture is worth a thousand words and perhaps people will think before using this stuff on the ground or in trees because snakes do climb trees.
Snakes have enough to contend with without having this stuff around.
We are not very kind to snakes and I hope that will change if enough people are educated.
I always think it is good luck to have snakes on my property but I know others do not.
Please, if you dislike snakes or if you have a rattlesnake, contact the police dispatcher at 662-8222 for a list of names of those who will relocate.
Watch the snake so when someone comes, they can pick it up quickly. Animal control does a beautiful job of relocating rattlesnakes. I was fortunate to have witnessed Tom Beyer of AC pick up a beautiful prairie rattlesnake on North Mesa a couple of weeks ago to be relocated elsewhere.
Tom made it look so easy.
