"Then two officers came out of the brush over there," he told The Oklahoman. "They didn't tell us they were the ones who had been shooting or that they had shot him. They didn't admit a doggone thing."
"I'm not saying the cop shot him on purpose," Tracy said. "It was an accident. But let me tell you â€" if I had a kid and put him in this car and didn't put him in a car seat and he got killed on the way to town, they'd charge me with murder ... and what this cop did is a lot worse than that."

There are several things here that I just don't understand. Why were they shooting at the snake in the first place. Was it an immediate threat? I could understand shooting a poisonous snake if it were close to someone's house, but I'd grab my shotgun and take care of the job.

this is pretty disgusting. who would call the police for a snake anyway?
wonder if they will come by my house and set mouse traps for me when i report a mouse in my house?
It happens fairly commonly and for all sorts of critters.
