Wyoming Resident Complains About Garter Snakes in Yard

LARAMIE (WY) — A resident of Laramie is complaining about an “infestation” of garter snakes in his yard. According to the Laramie Boomerang, both animal-control and wildlife officials say that their policy is not to remove free-ranging wild animals unless they’re stuck in a building; the resident, on the other hand, simply wants them out of there. From the article: “‘I don’t have children, I’m just afraid of snakes,’ said [the resident]. ‘Maybe I’m a big baby, but I don’t want them around here.’” Yes you are. Some people have all the luck.
