Notes:
Copperhead was found by a neighbor in the middle of the street after dark. I used my tongs to safely put him in a cage , so I could move him the next day. He musked and vibrated his tail . The next night I moved him one mile away into the woods. He again musked and vibrated his tail. Funny fellow!! Hoping he’s not too far from his home. The woods I brought him to has excellent habitat and no cars.
