This poor black racer got tangled up in black plastic netting.  Unfortunately, once they get in the netting they cannot get out.  They keep getting deeper into the net.  It took over 1/2 hour to cut away the netting as it was very tight around its body.  It is always better to not place the netting near the ground where snakes will try and go through.
