Today my little brother saw a snake in our pond. It was black with a zig-zag pattern. I think it was a water moccasin. I shot at it several times with my BB gun. When I was cocking the gun, the butt of the gun busted my lip. I kept on firing but it swam away. Here are some pictures, my Mom took.
UPDATE: Dad shot it the next day with his .22 rifle. It was actually 4 foot long but looked shorter in the water.
