Last September I got myself my first piece of roadkill! It wasn’t your average rabbit or pheasant either. NO! It was a SNAKE. Holy Shit! Snakes on a Plane, yes! But snakes in Scotland? No fucking way!
Apparently it was a Slow Worm. I stopped my car and got them both off the road. One was totalled, but the other I’d taken the end of its tail off. I picked it up to move it into the bushes and the thing went for me! Obviously, not knowing what it was I threw it into the bushes pretty sharpish. Ungrateful shit!
I was later told that they were probably on there way from the damp land near the Loch up into the hills where they would nest and have their kids. How shitty did I feel!
