On our morning walk on 6′ Bay Rd, Buckhorn, we came upon a freshly killed (runover) snake that I had never seen before. Not being fond of snakes, but not wishing it to be mutilated by more traffic, we moved it to the shoulder of the road, and took a couple of photos of it. It would appear to be an Eastern Milksnake. The milksnake is currently listed as a Species of  Special Concern under the Ontario Endangered Species Act, 2007 and Special Concern under the federal act.
