Abby considers a job

Snake hunter! Problem pythons in Florida are non-native, reach lengths from 12 to 19(!) feet and are eating up all the local critters.
Enter Labradors. They track the snake, crouch down to let the handler know they've spotted it and the snakes are caught. The snakes react to the dogs by curling up and going quiet. Article here.

I think if the snakes are just TOLD that Abby's coming, they'll quickly skedaddle.

I'm with Bob on this one. If they know Abby is on the job, all the snakes will leave FL.
