I still feel really bad about doing that.
Oh! I forgot I killed 3 snakes that were around my house when I first moved in. They were garter snakes, but I only did it because they were abnormally HUGE. At least 3 feet long with a big diameter. And I had small kids at the time and I didn't want them coming across them and freaking the snake out so it would bite them. I took a hard rake and pulled them out of my bushes and chopped them up with the spikes of the rake (not all at the same time).
I've seen plenty of smaller (normal) ones since then, but I leave them alone. The ones I killed were freaks.
