Diary Of A Snail Killer

I mentioned on Monday that I'd killed 37 snails on my walk to the bus stop on the way to work. I'm afraid to report that, although overnight/morning rain had taken place the conditions for killing snails was not as conducive on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday's tally was 10 snails, two millipedes and two slugs. This morning I could only manage two snails.

I'm disappointed in my efforts but perhaps my eradication program is all too effective. The tally could have been increased but I didn't feel the need to stomp on snails that were already climbing walls, just the ones on or near the footpath got my attention.

Why do you feel the need to kill snails? Don't they have a right to life just like you?
