    I don't hear the snakes complaining about the humans in their yard, but they have every right to. It's a matter of eminent domain. Live and let live.

    What did they think they would see when they build their houses in the foothills? Yes, you will see the occasional snake. If you move away from them they won't bother you. They don't want to bite you, they want to get away.

    They're just thirsty too. They follow the field mice out of the hills, who are also searching for water. Leave them alone and they'll generally move on.
