Having collected and kept snakes since I was 7, I keep a display
case full of them visible to anyone who passes the door.
Re: Zoological Security Forces ~
Some years ago I had friends whose home near a major freeway ( in
LA) was set quite far back from the ( secluded) street on a fairly
large lot, plus surrounded by lots of trees and shrubbery. Pretty
easy pickins' for evil doers wishing to work unobserved. When they
were inevitably burgled, dogs notwithstanding, they switched to geese
upon the recommendation of one of the investigating patrolmen. "Too
mean to predict, too stupid to con..." I would also add "loud". Angry
wings flapping up into the face is an effective dis-arming device.
And the reach of those beaks was, let's just say, strategic. Also
accurate. Plus there were the regular contributions to a lovely
garden, as well..
