5 Snakes Caught in Garden Netting

There are no warning labels. Nothing to prepare the consumer for what might happen if garden netting is used in a natural setting.

This is what can happen.

Today, WES responders received a call about 5 gopher snakes entangled in garden netting that was placed to protect the base of saplings. 

Four of the snakes were rescued alive, the fifth was dead when we arrived.

Watch the video below.
