Probably not. I'm sure he's been here all along.
This morning I saw a shucked snake-skin sticking out of a hole that leads into the foundation of the old bunkhouse right behind my house. About two feet of it was visible. I pulled as carefully as I could to extract the whole skin from the hole but lost some of it. What I was able to reclaim measured 69". I posted a couple of weeks ago about Emma's assassination of another good-sized bull snake ("A Bad Day for Mr. Snake"). I just hope she leaves this one alone and lets him do his job.
That's a 16" barrel on that Winchester.
