Baby rabbit calls out to be saved from deadly snake

Baby rabbit

(NaturalNews) I'd like to share a snapshot with you of life on the ranch. If you're dedicated to protecting life (as I am), you sooner or later end up saving animals of all kinds. Today I was able to save a baby rabbit from a snake (see photos below).

Baby rabbits really do scream for help when they are threatened by predators, by the way. I first noticed this rabbit screaming as I walked by an area of my yard with a lot of tall grass. I heard the high-pitched "eee! eee! eee!" that baby rabbits make when they are threatened. (If you live in the country, sooner or later you learn all the sounds made by all the animals. This sound was clearly a rabbit-in-danger sound.)

Confused about why a rabbit might be in trouble, I ventured closer and saw the rabbit scuttle underneath some brush. (The feature picture for this article is not the actual picture of the rabbit but rather the closest resemblance I could find.) The rabbit looked fine to me, but I decided it might be hungry so I gathered up some veggie leaves from my small pallet garden (see picture below) and went back to drop them in the area near the rabbit.

As I got closer, a giant snake literally leaped out of the grass right in front of me. (Apparently I scared it.) This snake was a non-venomous snake but precisely the kind that hunts field mice, field rats and, yes, baby rabbits.

I immediately grabbed my snake grabber device -- a 6-foot aluminum pole with a clasp handle on one end that articulates a snake clamp on the other end -- and dove back into the grass for the snake. He tried to escape but I could clearly see his movement rustling the tops of the grass, so I thrust the snake grabber where I hoped he would be and squeezed the clamp.

Bingo! I got the snake! I carried him to a barrel I had nearby, partially filled with some old grain (such is farm life), and plopped him into the barrel:

My rule on snakes is that if they're non-venomous, I don't shoot them -- I relocate them. Hence the use of the barrel.

Here's the picture of the snake inside the barrel. As you can see, he's pretty thick and beefy for a rat-eating snake. If he wasn't threatening the bunny, I probably would have left him alone just so he could eat more rats.

A few minutes later I had let him loose far from the rabbit, and he slithered away in a slight panic. When I went back to check on the baby rabbit, he was now quiet and apparently felt safe again. "Wow," I thought to myself. "I wouldn't have even checked that area if not for the warning cries of the rabbit." By crying out, that rabbit caused me to take action that saved its life.

Pallet gardening

Here's a picture of the corner of one of my pallet gardens:

If you grow gardens in pallets, make sure you use non-toxic wood. Some pallets are treated with chemicals.

BTW, welcome to life on the ranch, where I'm capturing snakes on a regular basis, working hard to keep our free-range chickens safe from predators, and learning more and more each day how to life in harmony with the natural world while protecting the lives of our farm animals.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
