- NEWS I FIND INTERESTING
by Michael John Scott
Dorsett tells Fox 13 news she was in traffic on March 10th when she saw a snake slither out of the vent to the left of her steering wheel. She cut across two lanes and stopped in a parking lot about 210 miles northwest of Miami. She says she slammed the door with the snake half in and half out.
Her husband then opened the door and the snake fell to the ground. She says he “euthanized” it, because that is, after all, what you do when you know nothing about snakes, except what you may have been taught, and that is they are all evil.
In this case, the snake was not only harmless, it provided a service by eating rodents. Ignorance once again rears its ugly head.
