Snake season is here

Snake season has begun, according to Steiner Ranch resident Bob Woche, an unofficial snake catcher for Four Points.


Woche caught this rattlesnake a couple of weeks ago in a backyard near Grimes Ranch Road, where he had to free it from a chicken wire fence.

“(The snakes) are starting to come out and they are hungry. This is a good time to remind people to be aware of their surroundings. And to call me if they see a snake. Don’t kill them,” Woche said.

 He urges people to call or text him if they encounter a snake at 512-627-6261 and he’ll remove for free when he’s available.
