The Great Outdoors – For People and Animals

— Written By and last updated by

Feeling a little paranoid about snakes? Would you like to learn more about avoiding conflicts with wildlife in general? You might consider visiting some of the online resources provided by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission. See the first link below for Six BearWise Basics and much more on bears; the second link provides information on a wide range of both mammals and reptiles. Let’s enjoy the outdoors without putting either ourselves or the animals at unnecessary risk.

Thanks to Christopher Kent, Coastal Regional Wildlife Biologist with the NC WRC and an N.C. Cooperative Extension of Craven County Advisory Council member, for passing along this important information.


Snakes aren’t stalking you. As far as you know.
