This morning we discovered a water moccasin in our front yard! My father and I grabbed our guns and ran around the house to head him off. Katie
ran behind us to help spot him. My mother stood watch at the window. When she and Katie both had confirmed where the snake was had hidden, dad and I
moved in. As soon as he spotted him, my dad fired, blasting the snake’s side. Boy did that make the snake mad. He went straight towards my mom, good thing she was safe on the other side of the glass. His fangs were out and he was striking. I had never seen anything like this before, he had these black things come at least two inches out of his mouth, they came out and twisted in semi-circles. He struck at the window and then headed down the
side of the house. Once we spotted him again, dad fired and pierced his head. From that point on the snake stayed in one area where we could all see
him. I fired and hit him a couple times,
unfortunately, I could only fire with my BB gun.
