Several months earlier, neighborhood kids showed interest in what Dad was doing when lifting boards at the Raab Mill site.  He explained to them about the snakes, and what he was doing with them.  Shortly thereafter, snakes that were commonly seen were no longer found.  It became apparent(likely)  that these kids were catching and keeping all the snakes.  For this reason, and the fact that the site was becoming overgrown and hard for her to find food, she was relocated to Camp Adair north of Corvallis about 10 miles from her original home.
