It is the right thing to do to obey the law. Sometimes laws are not sensible, such as: don’t kill a copperhead; transport it to another habitat. It’s on the endangered species list.
As a Missouri puke, that’s exactly what I feel like doing. They should pass the “Stomp Act.”
Armadillos were introduced to Missouri. They’ve been nothing but a pain in the tush. So much damage they’ve caused!
The balance of nature should not be upset. One man was bitten by a copperhead and is in the hospital. It was in his barn. They’ve come out seeking dryer ground after so much rain and flooding.
I can think of one fitting habitat for them – copperhead cemetery!
