Yesterday my sister went out to check on our baby bunnys and found this snake hanging on a rope that goes around the rabbit pen watching the baby's. We think it was a rat snake. It was over 4ft.

馃憜 Yep, move the snake to another area or other options. Snake visitor has the stink eye on those baby bunnies to fill a hungry belly from coming out of winter hibernation. And yes, a snake that size could and would constrict those little ones and be able to open its jaw enough to swallow them down. Been there done that and it is heartbreaking. Snake couldn't get out of the tiny little opening it squeezed through once it ate and had regurgitated 4 of the 5 consumed before I made the discovery.

Yep, had this happen to puppies before. Not fun

Was it black or brown? It's probably a rat snake. Definitely looks exactly like one. We have a lot here, we catch them and pet them all the time in the summer. We have tamed our wild snakes to let us feed them, pet them, hold them, etc. Even bring the house. So, basically they are our wild pets. But I'd definitely remove the snake from your property and release it somewhere not close to your farm.

Yep, remove it.

The snake is reading the bunny menu, which is not a good thing. :)

I agree..any snake around here, helpful ir not get the sharp end of a shovel if they are in the chicken coop or in the rabbit pen (when we had rabbits)
