Not an expert on western roundups but In the states where the Eastern inhabits the only means of capture for these snakes is 1.Gas a burrow or stumphole. Burrows often gassed are Gopher Tortoise. The affects this has on all wildlife using the burrow is not measurable. 300 species share these burrows. Including several endangered. 2.Find a burrow or stumphole and use snatch hooks or ammonia instead of illegal gassing technique. The roundups arent the #1 killer, fragmentation is. The EDB is currently under review to be included in Endangered Species Act and rightfully so. The Roundups are inhumane and encourage ignorant points of view...a see and kill....bounty mentality. There are 2 types of people out there..those who care less because they dont know any better..and those that look to the past and do whatever they can to make the same mistakes again. There is no way anyone can say that the roundups are necessary. Someone is making money off of others fears and misunderstanings at the expense of wildlife. There is nothing I can say to convince someone that supports these slaughters...ignorance is a [bleep]...
