That's something I run into frequently as a semi-professional Boy Scout.
"there's a snake in my camp site. Kill it. Kill it now."
"Sir, it's a king snake, we like those."
"But the boys...."
"Sir, the boys can learn from it."
I'm not a fan of snakes, they give me the willies, but I hate the wanton extinction of them like they were varmits or an invasive species.
