Water Moccasin Rescue

Water Moccasin Rescue

 

On December 29th, 2016, a Water Moccasin, also called a Cottonmouth, was in the street in front of 273 Harmony. TGO Nature Center volunteer and wildlife rescuer, Sandy Juba, was called to relocate the snake. While waiting for Sandy to arrive, Jan Elzey and Darlene Durham stood between the snake and traffic to keep the snake from being run over. Sandy confirmed it was a Water Moccasin and released it into a pond in an unpopulated area. Thank you, Sandy, for relocating this snake! Click on the photos below to get a closer look.
