Hi All SA Reptiles members

Can I please ask that you join us the Thamnophis forum members to try and get this eHow article removed, it promotes the killing of harmless snakes especially garters.
Please comment below the article and if you will please send an email as well to the following address support@ehow.zendesk.com we are bombarding them with emails to get this article taken down.

This is the link to the article, it is really disturbing.

http://www.ehow.com/how_8604209_kill-garter-snake.html

I hope that the moderators will approve this post and that the members here will help us in getting articles like these taken down from sites where they are supposed to post educational articles and not promote animal cruelty.

Thank you

@ndy

Beyond disgusting. I popped them an email.
Just proves how much we need natural disasters to remove people like that, who come with such articles!

I HAVE ANOTHER USE FOR THAT SHOVEL!!! Honestly! What can a garter snake do! Many people have asked me what to do with wild snakes and I have been able to convince most of them to keep them around as they help control rodents.

Seems it worked - I cant find that specific article, it comes up in the search option but when clicked it does not come up.
If you type "kill snake" in the search bar there are many other articles.
I think they should remove all articles related to killing of any animals on that website.
You know, you can touch a stick of dynamite, but if you touch a venomous snake it’ll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it’s not even funny.
