      Not in the UK!
      However when I was doing field work in Honduras there were lots of snakes. Some of them were very dangerous, they could kill you with a bite, so those ones had to be killed if they were in our field sites. The other, less dangerous ones we would pick up and move away from our site so that they didn’t get in the way.
