Can't we say the same thing about dogs? More people are attacked and bitten by dogs than by snakes. Should we go out and start killing all dogs now because they bite and can harm humans?
I'm not an expert on snakes, but I have and will handle them if the opportunity arises.
Why kill them? Snakes keep rodents and vermin in check. Ignorance is a terrible excuse to mindlessly endorse the killing of a creature. I'm not calling you ignorant, just saying a general ignorance of a species statement.
There aren't that many species of venomous snakes in North America. Many more species of non-venomous snakes.
