Notes:
called to a report of a snake in a sticky rodent trap. Upon arrival found a Black Racer in a glue trap. I applied vegetable oil to dissolve the glue and freed the snake. Snake was then washed with Dawn soap, and rinsed thoroughly. Snake was given some water to drink and accepted readily. Physical exam revealed a 51 inches, 15.7 ounce snake with no visible signs of injury or illness. Eyes clear, followed movement with each eye. No signs of pre-shed. Good range of motion throughout entire length of body. Transported snake to protected area and released without incident.
