Patrick Willis knows what to do when a snake tries to get in his house

Patrick Willis killed a snake. I feel like there needs to be some kind of Paul Bunyan-esque tall tale produced about this.

49ers all-world linebacker Patrick Willis posted a rather intriguing set of pictures on his Facebook page yesterday. Apparently, a snake tried to get into his house, and Willis was having none of that. The pictures show what appears to be Willis having used a pellet gun to take care of that there varmint.


Deadspin posted this and linked to the Wikipedia page for gopher snakes. Someone already got in and had a little fun with it:


Willis posts a lot of pictures over at, and for the most part it consists of him fishing, barbecuing with Zeus, and doing some more fishing with Takeo Spikes. Nothing like adding a little home defense to the mix.

Doesn't it seem like there needs to be some sort of Paul Bunyan-esque tall tale made from this incident?
