found an injured garter snake? help?

i was walking home today and i found a garter snake in a puddle. it was not able to get out so i picked it up and it appears to be injured near its tail. itís twisted up and a part is sticking out a bit. it looks like itís scarred over maybe? but itís twitching a lot. i can take pictures if needed. iím not sure what to do. thereís a lot of outdoor cats in the neighborhood and iíd hate to see it get killed

Re: found an injured garter snake? help?

Chances are, if it wasn't able to get out of the puddle, it won't make it. It's been a day or so, how's it looking? If it still seems fairly strong, I may consider a reptile vet, as they'll best be able to determine how to treat it.
