HI,

How does one go about catching a snake without actually having to be there doing the catching?My dad has this building, roughly 40x80 feet that he has all his crap in.(and a growing hunk of mine) It's out in the boonies, has 2 rollup garage doors, one regular door. One day dad says, hmm that looks like snake [bleep] as he pointed at some weird turd by one of the roll up doors. How he knows what snake [bleep] looks like I don't know(he's not exactly a herpetologist). Sometime later i'm moving some stuff around in the corner of the place and I make one of those spastic panic jumpbacks that can only occur when that 4 foot long stick laying there suddenly wiggles to life and crawls into the rusted out hole in the wall of the building. Sadly this was not to outside freedom, just into the wall insulation.A couple of months later dad did manage to kill a snake in the building but he said it wasn't as big as the one I described. I'm thinking surely it was the one, there couldn't be two snakes in the building, there's never been any before.So last week dad is out at the building doing something, and he looks down by one of the doors, and there is big ass snake again. He tried to pin it down but it got away when he went for something to catch it in.So today I had to go out there and get something and it took forever, I kept looking around thinking, crap what if the snake is here or there, or crawled up on this shelf or is in this box i'm moving to get to the one i need.So is there some kind of snake trap that can be deployed to capture this bad boy? Sure, I could do it the Visi way, get some piercings, bleach my skin and finish it off with some Jimmy Choo knee high leather boots, then tell some dufus i'm totally normal and love wabbits. Dufus gives me their pet rabbit, I skin it in front of them, then wear a rabbit mask while i place the rabbit carcas on a large bear trap as bait. There's also numerous jokes involving parking a commercial airliner with Samuel Jackson inside the building, but the doors simply are not big enough for that.So seriously hivemind, is there any way to catch this thing. Some kind of mousetrap for snakes. I'm neutral on killing it, dad didn't think it was poisonous, thinks its a gopher snake, and it has apparently taken care of the mice in the building so it deserves some positive karma. But if catching it involves death, oh well, it picked the wrong building to trespass in.

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
