Snake Snare Snaps Spines
Device Designed to Decapitate

As if the general publicís view on snakes were not already bad enough, a
company called SnakeSnare, LLC, in Iowa has taken it to the next level.
"SnakeSnare" is a device designed to intentionally decapitate wild snakes.

"SnakeSnare" is marketed on the internet and promotes use in areas like
neighborhoods and golf courses, "Where gunfire is impractical or illegal." The
website mentions that the product "can" capture a snake for relocation, but is
actually designed for "instant decapitation."

The marketing of the product seems to promote extermination of wild snakes,
and the site actually quotes the old adage "a good snake is a dead snake."

If you would like to voice your concerns about this product and itís marketing
objectives, please see their website at

www.snakesnare.com

and voice your concerns.
