Dangerous snakes confiscated from home in Avon

Dangerous snakes confiscated from home in Avon


The Associated Press
December 9, 2003 11:00 AM


AVON, IND. -- Conservation officers seized two dangerous snakes from a home west of Indianapolis and may seek misdemeanor charges against the couple who owned them.

A Hendricks County animal-control officer found the snakes Nov. 19 when she went to David and Dawn Hardwick's property in the suburb of Avon to investigate a complaint about a dog.

Officers from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources later obtained a search warrant to seize the snakes, an African puff adder and a timber rattlesnake.

The rattlesnake was still alive, but Dawn Hardwick said the couple killed the 22-pound puff adder by putting it in the freezer.

"We were going to polyurethane it and use it as a door stop," she explained.

Conservation officers said it is illegal to possess the reptiles, even if they are dead.

Doorstop, no doubt a bit tacky. I think it would look better as a book end.

With so many available DOR every year, it is odd that folks still kill snakes for belts, hatbands and apparently door stops. Plus, a 22 lb adder is a big *** snake, what was the size of this door? Good lord...lol. I guess it was to hard to find a block of wood or heavy rock.

Laminated? That's pretty tough on the machine... I prefer epoxy resin:-)
