If you kill a snake, it must be hung on a fence until sundown.
If you do not, the snake will come back to life.

Submitter comment: When I was young, I remember seeing a snake hanging on the
fence all day that my father had killed.

James Callow comment: See Puckett, Ohio, nos. 30842-30846: snakes, when killed,
won't die or even stop wriggling until sundown.

"A snake won't die until the sun goes down unless you hang him
on a barbed-wire fence." Puckett, Ohio, no. 30847.
