Description:

The dogs and I passed this adder at dusk it was resting in a hollow in the middle of the horsekeys' usual path.
I walked back via a different route to avoid the snake. I noticed one of the cats in the area and called her back. The next morning I found a very dead, trampled adder. I'm unclear as to whether the snake was killed by the cat and inadvertently trodden on by the horsekeys, or if it was deliberately attacked by the equines (most likely donkey).
