Observation Date:  9/12/13

Observation Time: 4:30 p.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Street

Common Name: Milk Snake

Comments: Sad to see this beautiful non-venomous milk snake run over by a car.  Milk snakes are generally docile, but when alarmed, they sometimes shake their tails against dead leaves to imitate the sound of a rattlesnake.
