I had been snakeless for a long while, and suddenly two nasties appeared in my garden in the last week. One was killed by the dogs. The other one (really small one, around 15 inches) I had to dispatch, and I only had a .177 air rifle in my hands... but that should suffice, right? After two .177 pellets to "neck" (at over 700 fps, rabbit killing territory) the snake was becoming very angry, so I had to go for the machete. And even after cutting the head off, the severed head threw bites at the air for a while! Some snakes are scarily slow to die.
