Exclamation The Law ... <'TK><

In Tennessee, it is illegal to harm, kill, remove from the wild, or possess native snakes taken from the wild without the proper permits. Please help the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) to protect our native snakes.

Laws About Killing Snakes in Tennessee | Hunker
It is also against the law to catch a native Tennessee snake, venomous or non-venomous, and keep it detained as a pet. This includes snakes found in or around your home and snakes taken from the wild.

I have always had a fear of snakes (but I like spiders, especially the beautiful yellow and black wood spiders ) but as I got older I gained respect for snakes and have learned to tolerate their invasion of my space. For me the only exception to this are the bad boys when it comes to immediate danger to Human life... Snake Heaven !! .... <'TK><
