Recovery strategy for the Pacific gophersnake (Pituophis catenifer catenifer) in Canada .: En3-4/286-2017E-PDF
"The Pacific Gophersnake (Pituophis catenifer catenifer) is a relatively large, non-venomous, yellow or cream coloured snake, with dark spots and a dark line across the face, from the eye to the jaw. The last sighting of the Pacific Gophersnake in Canada was on the Gulf Islands in British Columbia, in 1957, with the only other Canadian observation in 1866 in the Lower Fraser Valley near the Canada-U.S.A. border. The species was designated as Extirpated in 2002 by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC), and it was listed as Extirpated on Schedule 1 of the federal Species at Risk Act in 2005. Recovery in Canada is not considered to be biologically and technically feasible at this time”--Executive summary, p. iii.
