Credit references Are something else persons Are entitled to see what s on their own record at the credit Bureau re action in my opinion the lady who was upset about the copperheads and water moccasins in her Back Yard does not have much of a problem. I have never seen a poisonous water Snake in the High Point area. Unless her children Are moving trash or turning Over logs they will probably never see a Copperhead because they move out when the Patter of Little feet or a dog comes around. The Only time i am concerned with copperheads and rattlers is when the weather starts getting Cool and they Are fat sluggish and partially Blind. Then they will not move out of your Way and will strike at body heat. I can remember stepping on two copperheads Barefoot without being bitten. They were cold and i moved without calling a committee meeting. In the thirty years i have been scoutmaster our scouts have been in the Woods a total of 100,000 boy hours without the first one getting a bite from a poisonous Snake. During the same time we have had three killed in automobiles. I believe her children Are much safer playing in the Woods than in the Street. Milford h. Byerly scoutmaster troop i.
